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

Thanks syphilis, I never thought about cross-compilation!

This definitely isn't my end result here, but as I said in an earlier reply, I'm kind of just learning C, so that didn't cross my mind.

As I still to this day write my Perl code to compile on as far back of a version as I possibly can (5.8.x minimum), this is a nice piece of feedback, and another avenue of research I have to do as I pick up on C. Learning C is important to me as I have a lot of hardware-interaction software I want to write.

Perlmonks++ for being able to post something only somewhat relative to Perl and getting help for other languages. One thing is for certain... I had an easier time picking up on C pointers than I did originally figuring out Perl references, but while I was learning how to master those (perl refs), I had no programming experience whatsoever. However, this pointer-to-pointer thing (**) is a bit elusive still, so that's another "book learnin'" thing I still have to pick up on ;)

update: Above, I didn't mean learning Perl references was overly difficult (in fact, they're not... they're quite logical). The comparison is unfair; I hadn't done but a lick of coding when I had to figure out refs in Perl, but once I grasped them, references/pointers/whatever-you-want-to-call-them became immediately understandable. So really, learning Perl refs allowed me to understand the concept behind *any* languages that has the concept of the sort.

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.
