in thread XS from XS?

I believe that second technique I described (the Time::HiRes approach) does exactly what you want. In the exporting module, you store function pointer address values within a global Perl hash as integer scalar values. In the importing module, you recover those function pointer address values from the integer scalars and cast them to function pointers of the appropriate type.

[pryrt]: 1nickt, sprintf "%.16e", $v will always give enough precision to see 1 ULP (the smallest fractional part) of a standard 64bit Perl NV*
[pryrt]: (*: for systems where $Config{nvsize}==8 )
[pryrt]: Thus, that's "enough precision" to tell the difference between 1.0 and 1.0+1ULP
[pryrt]: But in what circumstance does your problem arise? When, in Perl, does the integer 1 not work identically to the floating-point NV 1.0000000000000000 e0?
