( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

XS code is much more likely to be buggy and fragile than Perl code. If you want to pass a list of bytes from Perl to C, then you would be better off doing it as a data structure that doesn't require your C code to try to deal with Perl data structures. This will also have the side-effect of you having less XS code, which will reduce how many bugs you have to fix and how long it will take you to fix the bugs you have.

So just use:

... my $str = pack "U0C*", @bytes; testing( $channel, $str, length($str) ); ... int testing( int channel, char* buf, int len ) {

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
