take a look at docs/embed.pod -- it has documentation on the functions
you'd be using, in particular the Parrot_call_sub family of functions.
you pass the subroutine name, a type signature for the arguments, and the
you can find examples in t/src/extend.t and t/src/embed.t, as well as
real-world usage in the mod_parrot source in src/parrot_util.c
(svn repo at https://svn.perl.org/parrot-modules/mod_parrot/trunk/)

you can store the raw data in a PMC (very simple if you pass it as an
argument from C), and/or your could break it out into an object (also a
PMC). you can do this from C or PIR. it all depends on how and where you
plan on using the data.
