I thought I would add a caveat to this thread so others can find it.

I use the Perl API on Windows with Visual Studio C++. While moving from Perl 5.8 to 5.20 the Perl API headers generated compile time errors.

The first error was:

c:\perl.5.20\lib\core\op_reg_common.h(58) : error C2144: syntax error +: 'void' should be preceded by ';'

SE keywords: op_reg_common.h void preceded

Someone in the IRC #xs chat channel referenced here.

Basically I needed to edit the config.h file from

#define PERL_STATIC_INLINE static __inline__ /**/
#define PERL_STATIC_INLINE static __inline /**/
I don't know why it wasn't defined with ifdefs for each compiler.

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.
