    It didn't working

    use strict; { my $string = "Oh please, good sir program, what is my length?"; printf ("The length is %d characters\n", howlong ($string)); use Inline C => <<'END_OF_C_CODE'; #include <string.h> int howlong(char *s) { return strlen (s); } END_OF_C_CODE }

      Works fine on Linux. I imagine you're missing either Inline::C or string.h and the associated library.
