in reply to Call C functions from Perl

You can call C functions from Perl. The simplest way AFIK is using Inline::C. I don't have any experience using it together with a VS C compiler, I just used it a few times with the GCC under Linux.

Another way to call C code from Perl is using XS, but IMHO it's only for advanced Perl programmers, e.g. to write Perl extensions.

    Or better, take the xs code that Inline::C generated and use it directly.
