Good thread.
I tried to get this code working with Active State 5.20, but I don't have right "formula" to do that on my current little laptop. Is there a FAQ on this? What compiler is necessary, etc...?

PS: I think your check() would be more "C like" coded something like this:

void check(unsigned char* n, int len) { while (len--) { printf ("%d\n", *n++); } }
The variable: int i is unnecessary. With the C calling convention on 32 bit machine, check() is passed a 32 bit pointer to n (pointer to an array of unsigned bytes) and a 32 bit signed integer, len on the stack. These are copies for the subroutine to modify and use as it wishes.

This n[i] syntax is often coded by the compiler as (n i*size_of_n) plus base address. Whereas n++ is coded as n plus the size_of_n.

  • 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:

  • 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.
