Anonmonk, here is how but I can't see how this is related to Inline::C.

Case2 (pass a scalar - not a ref) is obviously failing. But I don't think that should apply to Inline::C because AFAICT a scalar, like a scalarref and any ref, is passed as an SV * which I can affect its PV field within func() and insert an arrayref in there. A good warmup though thanks.

use strict; use warnings; use Test::More; use Data::Dumper; my $correct_result = make_a_rowsxcols_array(5,3); print Dumper($correct_result); ### $#out = -1; # clears an array; # Case1: pass it an arrayref my $T = 'Case1'; my @out = (1,2,3); is( case1(\@out), 0, "$T: returned success."); is_deeply(\@out, $correct_result, "$T: correct result."); # Case2: pass it a scalar $T = 'Case2'; my $x = 123; is( case2($x), 0, "$T: returned success."); is_deeply($x, $correct_result, "$T: correct result."); # Case3: pass it a scalarref $T = 'Case3'; my $y = 123; is( case3(\$y), 0, "$T: returned success."); is_deeply($y, $correct_result, "$T: correct result."); done_testing(); sub case1 { # pass an arrayref, clear it and make it 5rowsx3cols my $out = $_[0]; return 1 unless ref($out) eq 'ARRAY'; $#{ $out } = -1; push @$out, @{ make_a_rowsxcols_array(5,3) }; return 0; } sub case2 { # pass a simple scalar, make it an arrayref my $out = $_[0]; return 1 unless ref($out) eq ''; $out = make_a_rowsxcols_array(5,3); return 0; } sub case3 { # pass a scalarref, fill it with an arrayref to 5rowsx3cols my $out = $_[0]; return 1 unless ref($out) eq 'SCALAR'; undef $$out; $$out = make_a_rowsxcols_array(5,3); return 0; } sub make_a_rowsxcols_array { [ map { [ (42)x$_[1] ] } 1..$_[0] ] }

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:

  • 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).
