Thank you for your response. In spite of not
making the test suite, I gave it (Inline::CPP) a try. First
Program, as described in the Examples compiled,
but segfaulted the perl core on program return with:
Free to wrong pool 235e38 not b01f4.
Another test, using an already compiled library and an include path for using the respective functions, like:
use strict; use warnings; use Inline 'CPP'; use Inline CPP => Config => INC => '/I C:\\some\\tools\\' => LIBS => '/libpath:"C:\\some\\tools\\bin"' => LIBS => 'important.lib' ; my $n = ask_important_lib('question'); print $n; __END__ __CPP__ #include "important.h" int ask_important_lib(char* question) { SOMECLASS var(question); if( var.errorstatus() ) { printf("we got an error %d on question %s!\n", var.errorstatus(), +question); return -1; } return 1; }

The above wouldn't even start to compile, nmake (1.5) will complain:

... makefile(878) : fatal error U1083: target macro '$(OBJECT)' expands t +o nothing ...

So I throwed the towel. This seems to be completely non-workable on anything non-trivial C++ problem.

BTW: I tried similar w/Ruby's RubyInline on
Ruby 1.9 - also w/Visual C++ 6.

Almost the same result. Some trivial things work,
but anything referencing external include files
or libs won't work (at least with Visual C++ 6, the
system the actual Ruby 1.9.1 binary for win32 is built

Thanks & regards
