Interesting question...

I came across a public article about linking and differences between Windows and Unix by Symantec:
Symantec, Dynamic Linking in Linux and Windows, part one
Symantec, Dynamic Linking in Linux and Windows, part two

This is not a "light read" and I did not study it in depth. I'm not sure if this article "jives" with what I heard 20 years ago..that Linux can load a .so faster than Windows can load a .DLL, because Windows has to adjust jump addresses and potentially make another copy of the DLL which takes time, but that once linked, calling (running) with the Windows DLL is faster? I was working on systems around the time that NT was a separate thing from Windows.

Anyway there appears to be a lot of detail for those inclined in the above articles.

I have never used Inline:C or linked to an external C program with Perl. I don't know what difference there may be with that either. BrowserUk does a lot of Windows combined with C stuff and hopefully he can shower some wisdom down upon us.

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.
