Perllib v1 release

Okay, this technically isn't a NCUFP, since it isn't in perl, but this seemed like the best place to put it. I have written a C library that (ostensibly) emulates perl's datatypes. This release is more of an attempt to display (and fix) my current glaring mistakes so I can make new glaring mistakes with future versions. All of the current information is available at the sourceforge perllib site. Please download and evaluate what I've done. Many eyes and all that =-).


P.S. Please send all bug reports to

    Hi. I've had a bit of perlxs experience and after looking at your library, frankly I don't see a benefit. If you could accept some constructive criticism, I'd suggest that you move towards the superior encapsulation of C++. If you could throw together a library that allows for regex support and the other benefits and goodies of Perl combined with the overloading of C++, you'd have a very popular library indeed. This, of course, would require linking with perl.h and extern.h. I was working on something similar in C++ for strings and Perl regexes, but it never panned out. Let me know if you'd like some assistance!
    AgentM Systems nor Nasca Enterprises nor Bone::Easy nor Macperl is responsible for the comments made by AgentM. Remember, you can build any logical system with NOR.
      I suspect you want to look at pcre...
        Thanks to you both! The pcre will be uniquely useful. I am working on a c++ version of the lib w/ LOTS of overloading, and it is this shortcoming in C that I hope to overcome with the compiler that I will (eventually) write. In the meantime, please use/break the lib and tell me about it!
