in thread Interfacing Perl with C++, using XS, with external files, and using the STL as parameters and return values.
Awesome, I was hoping I'd get a hold of someone who was on top of this.
The fact that I missed XS++, is pretty laughable, and definitely NOT my fault. I must have re-worded 'perl "C++" XS' 50 different ways on multiple search engines and never ONCE hit XS++. That is pretty frustrating, considering the time and effort I put into researching this, AND the time that Mattia and you must have spent writing XS++ and all this documentation. Heck, I even emailed the Wx mailing list asking for pointers on handling exceptions and multiple objects. I INCLUDED a link to this very post. Mattia himself didn't mention that I wasn't using ExtUtils::XSpp!
NOBODY mentioned anything about XS++ to what I was doing, not my book (Extending and Embedding), not anyone on Perlmonks, not Ironman Perl, not google. Obviously, I've never heard of it, and OBVIOUSLY, nobody ELSE has either.
This whole process just feels like a kick in the teeth, and this is the cherry on top.
