Do you know where your variables are?

If the first 4 arguments are for specifying ways to output 2 strings, then you can get simpler than that!

int tdSensor( protocol, protocolLen, model, modelLen, id, dataTypes ) SV * protocol int protocolLen SV * model int modelLen int & id int & dataTypes CODE: { STRLEN n_a; (void) SvPV_force( protocol, n_a ); (void) SvPV_force( model, n_a ); SvGROW( protocol, protocolLen ); SvGROW( model, modelLen ); } RETVAL = tdSensor( SvPV(protocol), protocolLen, SvPV(model), modelLen, &id, &data +Types ); SvCUR_set( protocol, strlen(SvPV(protocol)) ); SvCUR_set( model, strlen(SvPV(model)) ); OUTPUT: RETVAL id dataTypes

But much simpler (and less likely to be buggy) than even that is:

int _tdSensor( protocol, protocolLen, model, modelLen, id, dataTypes ) char * protocol int protocolLen char * model int modelLen int & id int & dataTypes CODE: RETVAL = tdSensor( protocol, protocolLen, model, modelLen, &id, &d +ataTypes ); OUTPUT: RETVAL id dataTypes


sub tdSensor { my( $protocolLen, $modelLen ) = @_; $protcolLen ||= 1024; $modelLen ||= 1024; my $protocol = '\0' x $protcolLen; my $model = '\0' x $modelLen; my $id = 0; my $dataTypes = 0; my $ret = _tdSensor( $protocol, $protocolLen, $model, $modelLen, $id, $dataTypes ); s/\0.*// for $protocol, $model; return( $ret, $protocol, $model, $id, $dataTypes ); }

Which has the significant advantage of making it much easier to improve the interface without having to futz with the super finicky XS part of the 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.
