in thread reading C data structure

i am writing a code to call C from Perl. As I said I have one variable in a C code that I want to export. This variable needs to be used by a perl function.

    So in fact it seems you have some C code that you need to access from Perl. The key "word" you need is "XS" and the documentation is in perlxs. You will probably find that documentation heavy going. If you describe what you are doing better you may garner more help. Calling some C code from Perl and returning a result is a very common task.

    True laziness is hard work
