This is the kind of code that, in my experience, is one of the most likely sources of particularly troublesome errors/bugs. If you want to provide a Perlish interface, then I'd implement that in Perl code, not in XS code.

If you are having to deal with reference counts, for example, then you are highly likely to get it wrong sooner rather than later and more than once and probably not always notice the problem before you release the code.

Just write a tiny wrapper function in mundane Perl code and have that call the very, very thinly wrapped XS that calls the C code. Only do in XS those things that you really have to do in XS.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </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.
