Lately I've been contemplating doing something using a combo of Perl and C (something I want to do only uses an SDK in C).
Having never done this before, I see there are several possibilites, including Inline::C, XS, and SWIG. Also interesting is that Slashdot ran an article yesterday reviewing a book on using Perl and XS.
However, I can't find anything concise that compares the different methods I mentioned above. From what I can tell, the Inline method seems to be the simplest for those like me who've never done this before, but I'm wondering what the trade-offs are for the other methods (speed, granularity, etc). I'm primarily targetting the Win32 platform.
All suggestions appreciated.
