in thread Inline::C and NULL pointers

> Well ... Inline::C is, in the final analysis, nothing other than XS. The "friendly" aspect of it is that it automatically does all of the work for you - it automatically creates the entire XS distro (Makefile.PL, XS file, pm file), compiles it, installs it, then executes the script.

In addition to that, it also deals with the compiling and linking stage automagically for you, particular when using a Alien::* module that provides an Inline method. And if your Alien need calls for it, it may provide a set of AUTO_INCLUDEs for you. Alien::OpenMP does this for you, e.g. See Inline::C::Cookbook for more info (scroll down to discussion).
