NAME
       XS::APItest - Test the perl C API

SYNOPSIS
         use XS::APItest;
         print_double(4);

ABSTRACT
       This module tests the perl C API. Currently tests that
       "printf" works correctly.

DESCRIPTION
       This module can be used to check that the perl C API is
       behaving correctly. This module provides test functions
       and an associated test script that verifies the output.

       This module is not meant to be installed.

       EXPORT

       Exports all the test functions:

       print_double
           Test that a double-precision floating point number is
           formatted correctly by "printf".

             print_double( $val );

           Output is sent to STDOUT.

       print_long_double
           Test that a "long double" is formatted correctly by
           "printf". Takes no arguments - the test value is hard-
           wired into the function (as "7").

             print_long_double();

           Output is sent to STDOUT.

       have_long_double
           Determine whether a "long double" is supported by
           Perl.  This should be used to determine whether to
           test "print_long_double".

             print_long_double() if have_long_double;

       print_nv
           Test that an "NV" is formatted correctly by "printf".

             print_nv( $val );

           Output is sent to STDOUT.

       print_iv
           Test that an "IV" is formatted correctly by "printf".

             print_iv( $val );

           Output is sent to STDOUT.

       print_uv
           Test that an "UV" is formatted correctly by "printf".

             print_uv( $val );

           Output is sent to STDOUT.

       print_int
           Test that an "int" is formatted correctly by "printf".

             print_int( $val );

           Output is sent to STDOUT.

       print_long
           Test that an "long" is formatted correctly by
           "printf".

             print_long( $val );

           Output is sent to STDOUT.

       print_float
           Test that a single-precision floating point number is
           formatted correctly by "printf".

             print_float( $val );

           Output is sent to STDOUT.
