Update: read Re: Using module with c code in perl program. by AnonyMonk, as that post contains the full explanation straight from the docs. /update.

I haven't coded in C in many years, and I've never used Inline::C ever, but I took a stab. When I simplify your C code, then change __END__ to __DATA__ in the module, I can get the C to compile, and things *appear* to work correctly. eg:


package c_calc; use Inline C; 1; __DATA__ __C__ int test(int num){ return num; }


use warnings; use strict; use lib '.'; use c_calc; my $num = c_calc::test(5); print $num;

Might be worth a try. Let us know if it works or not, as inevitably, one or more of the Inline experts will be around eventually.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
