xsubpp - compiler to convert Perl XS code into C code
] [-s pattern
] [-typemap typemap
] [-output filename
This compiler is typically run by the makefiles created by ExtUtils::MakeMakeror by Module::Build or other Perl module build tools.
xsubpp will compile XS code into C code by embedding the constructsnecessary to let C functions manipulate Perl values and creates the gluenecessary to let Perl access those functions. The compiler uses typemaps todetermine how to map C function parameters and variables to Perl values.
The compiler will search for typemap files called typemap. It will usethe following search path to find default typemaps, with the rightmosttypemap taking precedence.
It will also use a default typemap installed as "ExtUtils::typemap".
Note that the "XSOPT"
MakeMaker option may be used to add these options toany makefiles generated by MakeMaker.
- Retains '::' in type names so that C++ hierarchical types can be mapped.
- Adds exception handling stubs to the C code.
- -typemap typemap
- Indicates that a user-supplied typemap should take precedence over thedefault typemaps. This option may be used multiple times, with the lasttypemap having the highest precedence.
- -output filename
- Specifies the name of the output file to generate. If no file isspecified, output will be written to standard output.
- Prints the xsubpp version number to standard output, then exits.
- By default xsubpp will not automatically generate prototype code forall xsubs. This flag will enable prototypes.
- Disables the run time test that determines if the object file (derivedfrom the ".xs" file) and the ".pm" files have the same versionnumber.
- Prevents the inclusion of '#line' directives in the output.
- Disables certain optimizations. The only optimization that is currentlyaffected is the use of targets by the output C code (see perlguts).This may significantly slow down the generated code, but this is the wayxsubpp of 5.005 and earlier operated.
- Disable recognition of "IN", "OUT_LIST" and "INOUT_LIST" declarations.
- Disable recognition of ANSI-like descriptions of function signature.
- Currently doesn't do anything at all. This flag has been a no-op formany versions of perl, at least as far back as perl5.003_07. It'sallowed here for backwards compatibility.
- -s=... or -strip=...
- This option is obscure and discouraged.
If specified, the given string will be stripped off from the beginningof the C function name in the generated XS functions (if it starts with that prefix).This only applies to XSUBs without "CODE" or "PPCODE" blocks.For example, the XS:
void foo_bar(int i);
when "xsubpp" is invoked with "-s foo_" will install a "foo_bar"function in Perl, but really call bar(i) in C. Most of the time,this is the opposite of what you want and failure modes are somewhatobscure, so please avoid this option where possible.
No environment variables are used.
