So how do i call such a function(function name having an underscore character) in SQUEAK.

You can use the underscore character in the function name. The underscore
(Character value: 95) is displayed as a left arrow on your Squeak display,
but is still the same thing as an underscore character.

I am not an FFI expert, but I think that this should work without problems.
