c call

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by George Mpouras, Mar 26, 2014.

  1. At windows I can call a C function as end user, using the Win32::API
    Can I do something similar at Linux ?
    Do not mention the inline because we assume that there is so access to C

  2. AFAIK, no, as this would require generating different kinds of 'glue
    code' at run time, depending on whatever the calling conventions of the
    current platform happen to be.

  3. Never tried it myself, but try look at FFI::Library or FFI::Raw.

    Easy enough to do, I would think, if you compile in a constant that tells
    you which calling convention the compiler is using.

  5. I don't know how the FFI module works internally (and can't easily
    determine that at the moment), but a naive approach would need explicitly written,
    platform-specific machine code.

    How about the Inline module which makes it trivial to embed calls to other languages from Perl programs.
