in thread Win32::API::Struct: Pointers of Pointers

that's what i mean. it is a pointer of a pointer. The function alloactes the needed memory itself. here is the prove

sub query_users { my ( $self, $filename ) = @_; my $func = import_api( 'advapi32', 'QueryUsersOnEncryptedFile', 'P +P', 'N' ); die "Could not import API QueryUsersOnEncryptedFile: $!" unless defined $func; $filename = make_unicode( File::Spec->canonpath($filename) ); + my $ptr = " " x 4; # 4 == sizeof(void*) my $result = $func->Call( "$filename", $ptr ); print "result: $result\n"; return undef if $result; my $address = unpack( "L*", $ptr ); printf("0x%08x\n", $address); }
i think i have to switch to XS at this point.

    In theory, this should work...but it doesn't.

    #! perl -slw use strict; use Encode; use Devel::Peek; use Win32::API::Prototype; ApiLink( 'advapi32', q[ DWORD QueryUsersOnEncryptedFile( LPCWSTR lpFileName, ULONG pUsers ) ]) or die $^E; my $buffer = chr(0) x 4; print Dump( $buffer ); my $pointer = unpack 'L!', pack 'P', $buffer; printf "%08x\n", $pointer; my $uFile = encode( 'UTF-16LE', $_ = $ARGV[ 0 ], 1 ); print $uFile; QueryUsersOnEncryptedFile( $uFile, $pointer ) or die "$! : $^E"; print Dump( \$buffer ); print unpack 'C*',$buffer;

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
