MirOS Manual: XS::Typemap(3p)


ext::XS::Typemap:PerleProgrammers Reext::XS::Typemap::Typemap(3p)

NAME

     XS::Typemap - module to test the XS typemaps distributed
     with perl

SYNOPSIS

       use XS::Typemap;

       $output = T_IV( $input );
       $output = T_PV( $input );
       @output = T_ARRAY( @input );

DESCRIPTION

     This module is used to test that the XS typemaps distributed
     with perl are working as advertised. A function is available
     for each typemap definition (eventually). In general each
     function takes a variable, processes it through the OUTPUT
     typemap and then returns it using the INPUT typemap.

     A test script can then compare the input and output to make
     sure they are the expected values. When only an input or
     output function is provided the function will be named after
     the typemap entry and have either '_IN' or '_OUT' appended.

     All the functions are exported. There is no reason not to do
     this since the entire purpose is for testing Perl. Namespace
     pollution will be limited to the test script.

NOTES

     This module is for testing only and should not normally be
     installed.
