in thread Using $a and $b from XS

Just nit-picking, but... it's not (necessarily) main::a and main::b. They have to be in the package of the comparison sub.

    Any pointers as to how to discover the caller's package from XS/Inline::C?

    Update: Never mind. Just dropping the 'main::' part seems to work fine--so long as they don't embed a package statement into the comparator sub.
