in reply to Inline::C with multiple *.c

Is there a better way?

Yes, chdir

#!/usr/bin/perl -- use Path::Class; use constant THISFILE => "".file( __FILE__ )->absolute; use constant THISDIR => "".file( THISFILE )->dir; BEGIN { chdir THISDIR or die $!; } use Inline ( C => Config => LIBS => "-Llib/relative -lrelative", INC => "-Iinc/relative", BUILD_NOISY => 1, CLEAN_AFTER_BUILD => 0, DIRECTORY => 'RELATIVE', # INVALID VALUE?! IT MUST EXIST ); use Inline C => file('a.c')->absolute, qw' NAME RelativeA '; use Inline C => file('b.c')->absolute, qw' NAME RelativeB '; use strict; use warnings; ...

    Thanks, your syntax does seem much cleaner and more intuitive.

    However, I just stumbled across another odd problem. I just changed my b.c so that it calls a function from a.c. Since a.c is built first, it generates a DLL (I'm doing this on Windows under Strawberry Perl). Next, when building b.c, it has to be linked against the first DLL. But I can't specify that in the config section above because it's common to all Inline::C files and clearly that DLL does not yet exist when compiling/linking a.c.

    Any suggestions?
