You might try:
SV* get_date (char* str) { char date[9]; /* the date to return */ char new_date[9]; /* this will be the date after reordering */ while ( *str++ != '|' ); strncpy( date, str, 8); new_date[0] = date[4]; new_date[1] = date[5]; new_date[2] = date[6]; new_date[3] = date[7]; new_date[4] = date[0]; new_date[5] = date[1]; new_date[6] = date[2]; new_date[7] = date[3]; return newSVpv(new_date,8); }
Might make a small difference…
