in reply to Inline::C not behaving as expected

Though you are using strncpy(), your string is not null-terminated. (update: to quote from the docs for strncpy on my machine "if there is no null byte among the first n bytes of src, the result will not be null-terminated.") To fix this probably you can do one of the following:

  • Add a date[8] = '\0'; line.
  • Use newSVpvn(date,8) to create a string of a specific length.

I would note that your current use of newSVpvf() should be replaced with newSVpv(date,0) or similar, to prevent odd behavior and/or major security flaws from popping up if your data contains %s. (Or, at least, to prevent you from getting in to the habit of coding that way for when it would matter.)

[Eily]: Maybe the puns in his dialogues were somehow kept through translation, but I can tell he lost his accent
[LanX]: qui?
[Eily]: Astérix
1nickt gives up on finding a Perl YAML parser that supports hash merging. In 2017.
[LanX]: Oh yes true, he lost his accent! xD
[Eily]: and since his name is a modified version of astérisque (asterisk), which is a typographical symbol, I think it's even funnier that he would lose a diacritic
[Eily]: the pun doesn't work so well with "he lost a diacritic" though :P
[LanX]: Obelix might offer to find it again ...
[LanX]: not much to translate anyway since Goscinny died
[Eily]: https://en. wikipedia.org/ wiki/List_of_Aster ix_characters some of the names were changed to include a new pun
