in reply to Interfacing to a pre-built DLL

I guess I don't quite get it. What's so wrong with Win32::API? I mean, I definitely see an argument for developing a custom module as a wrapper around that rather than using Win32::API directly in application code, but why go to the trouble of XS or Inline just to call an external DLL when you don't need to?

    Hi ,

    Aldo himself suggests that, for heavy duty use (and here I assume he's referring to production code et al), XS should be used in preference to his own Win32::API module ...
