My approach (which, admittedly, won't work for everybody) was to debug the two sides, separately. I got the Perl working with the C calls stubbed-out and I got the C working with a test harness on that side. At that point, I plugged the bad boys together and it worked like a charm.

Of course, YMMV.

    Yikes! Was this node down-voted because somebody really doesn't like SWIG, because I defended my original post, because I elided the complexities of the interface, or for some other reason? I didn't mean to step on toes, here.

      Only the person who voted knows, and they're not saying. But then you knew that already.
      Try not to take voting personally. Sometimes people down-vote just because they disagree with what you're saying. Maybe they agree with me about swig being mostly a waste of time.
