in thread XS: EXTEND/mPUSHi

Inline/C.pm uses sp = mark;, when it should probably use SP = MARK;, and I'd not even sure if that's officially allowed

In pp.h I can see:
#define SP sp #define MARK mark
So I'm guessing that case is not going to be critical.

But I don't know whether the assignment is officially allowed. The perl source itself makes that assignment in a number of places - but that doesn't necessarily give that usage the green light.

How would you adjust the stack pointer if you wanted to ? Is altering it something that you would prefer to avoid ?

    Until they change macros, which they can do since you're suppose to be using the macros?

    I'd let xsubpp do it. See Re^6: XS: EXTEND/mPUSHi.
