I've taken on Co-maintainership for Inline::CPP

This is excellent news!!

I almost established co-maintainership of Inline::CPP a couple of years back, but I kept losing contact with Neil at critical moments, and it never happened. (That was actually quite fortuitous as I'm not the right person for the job, anyway - my CPP skills are best described in terms that don't involve the use of the word "skill" ;-)

Version 0.29 builds and tests for me on my 32-bit builds of perl (where I'm using the port of gcc-4.5.2).

But ... things don't go quite so well if the compiler to be used is not called 'g++'.
In we have:

sub validate { my $o = shift; $o->{ILSM}{MAKEFILE}{CC} ||= 'g++'; # default compiler $o->{ILSM}{MAKEFILE}{LIBS} ||= ['-lstdc++']; # default libs
That effectively hard-codes in 'g++' and '-lstdc++'.
You'll note that the Makefile.PL rewrites, replacing the strings '@COMPILER' and '@DEFAULTLIBS' with the selected compiler and libs ... except that there's now *no* such strings as '@COMPILER' and '@DEFAULTLIBS' anywhere in ... so stays exactly as it was ... which is fine if (and only if) you're using 'g++'.

Do you see what I mean ?

    Hey, thanks for the input. I'll look it over within a day or so.

    Maybe I should set up a mailing list or something, since lengthy discussion here is probably a little too far out on a tangent to be on-topic in the Monastery.


      I'll look it over within a day or so.

      No problems - there's no screaming urgency about this.

      The issue goes a bit deeper, too. (For the same reason, even with 0.25 you can't extract the source, build it, run 'make realclean', then build again for a perl that uses a different C++ compiler. For the second build you have to extract the source all over again.) I'll submit a bug report and tentative patch.

      Good luck with Inline::CPP !!


        Your patches have been applied for v0.30, and should show up on the mirrors within a few hours.

        Future bug announcements and discussion will take place on the RT site at: I think for now the facilities that provides are adequate for our purposes in lieu of a dedicated mailing list. I look forward to seeing you there.

        Update: syphilis confirmed that the v0.30 distribution resolved this issue for him. Once the CPAN testers matrix catches up we'll know more.
