If you still crave red even after reading the example from the CocoaBridge topic, here's an even more elaborate example.

The point of this example is to demonstrate a non-trivial use of the OpenMCL foreign function interface. (The example is based on pp. 531-540 of  Programming with Quartz, by Gelphman and Laden.)

(The (float ... ccl::+cgfloat-zero+) business is necessary because a CGFloat is a single float on 32-bit systems, and a double-float on 64-bit systems, and we want the same source code to work on both.)

(defcallback red-black-ramp (:address info (:array :<CGF>loat) in (:array :<CGF>loat) out :void)
  (declare (ignore info))
  (let ((w (paref in (:array :<CGF>loat) 0)))
    (setf (paref out (:array :<CGF>loat) 0) (float (- 1.0 (abs (- 1.0 (* w 2.0)))) ccl::+cgfloat-zero+)
	  (paref out (:array :<CGF>loat) 1) (float (- 1.0 (abs (+ (* 1.0 (- 1.0 w)) (* 0.878 w)))) ccl::+cgfloat-zero+)
	  (paref out (:array :<CGF>loat) 2) (float 0.0 ccl::+cgfloat-zero+)
	  (paref out (:array :<CGF>loat) 3) (float 1.0 ccl::+cgfloat-zero+))))

(defun rgb-function (eval-fn)
  (let* ((zero (float 0.0 ccl::+cgfloat-zero+))
	 (one (float 1.0 ccl::+cgfloat-zero+)))
    (rlet ((domain (:array :<CGF>loat 2))
	   (range (:array :<CGF>loat 8)))
      ;; Shadings parameterize the input between 0 (the starting point
      ;; of the shading) and 1 (the ending point of the shading).
      (setf (paref domain (:array :<CGF>loat) 0) zero
	    (paref domain (:array :<CGF>loat) 1) one)
      ;; The range of the output colors.  For an RGB color space, there
      ;; are four (start, end) pairs: one for each R, G, B, A component.
       ;; red
       (paref range (:array :<CGF>loat) 0) zero
       (paref range (:array :<CGF>loat) 1) one
       ;; green
       (paref range (:array :<CGF>loat) 2) zero
       (paref range (:array :<CGF>loat) 3) one
       ;; blue
       (paref range (:array :<CGF>loat) 4) zero
       (paref range (:array :<CGF>loat) 5) one
       ;; alpha
       (paref range (:array :<CGF>loat) 6) zero
       (paref range (:array :<CGF>loat) 7) one)
      (rlet ((callbacks :<CGF>unction<C>allbacks))
	    (setf (pref callbacks :<CGF>unction<C>allbacks.version) 0
		  (pref callbacks :<CGF>unction<C>allbacks.release<I>nfo) +null-ptr+
		  (pref callbacks :<CGF>unction<C>allbacks.evaluate) eval-fn)
	    (#_CGFunctionCreate +null-ptr+ 1 domain 4 range callbacks)))))

Load the file containing these forms, evaluate (show-gradient-window) and you'll see a window with a red gradient in it.
