in thread Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 4: LLVM Backend?

So what you're saying is that its a sin to have a facility that has been fully documented in perlguts.pod since 5.6.0, 12 years ago?

Fully documented?

perlnewmod
    |
    xs
    V
perlxs, perlxstut

Why would someone writing a simple XS wrapper for some Win32 api read perlguts and know to add this very important define?

h2xs ... doesn't write PERL_NO_GET_CONTEXT

swig ... doesn't write PERL_NO_GET_CONTEXT

Module-Starter-XSimple, dzil ... no mention of PERL_NO_GET_CONTEXT

Calling this a sin and saying cpan authors (esp Win32) don't care, even if I insert the missing smiley, is rude balooney.

Trying to turn around , my merely sarcastic reply, back at me is troll excrement.
