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 dis-
       tributed 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.
