Re^6: Calling a function form an external DLL with Inline::C on windows
in thread Calling a function form an external DLL with Inline::C on windows
Sorry for replying so late, I wasn't following the thread anymore.
Win32::SerialPort comes in because there are other components of my application beside the data readout that uses TCP/IP: one of these components uses serial communication to drive a positioning system.
But I was mistaken about the purported incompatibility between Inline::C and Win32::SerialPort, they work together just fine. It was I who introduced a subtle bug in my program that caused those error messages.
Sorry for the confusion.
