The following is the code generated for this declaration, with some

  :- mutable(foo, int, 123, ground, [untrailed, attach_to_io_state]).

get_foo_1_p_0() ->
  'ML_erlang_global_server' ! {get_mutable, t__mutable_variable_foo, self()},
    {get_mutable_ack, Value} ->

set_foo_1_p_0(X) ->
  'ML_erlang_global_server' ! {set_mutable, t__mutable_variable_foo, X}.

! is the 'send' operator

'ML_erlang_global_server' is the name of the process holding a table of globals

get_mutable, set_mutable, t__mutable_variable_foo are just atoms
