If you really want to output arrays from C, you need to push your items on the stack.

Right, that's the ticket. This seems to work the way I want:

#include <sys/types.h> #include <dirent.h> #include <stdio.h> void readdir_inode(dirname) char* dirname INIT: struct dirent *ent; DIR* dir; SV* record[2]; AV *entry, *ret_val; PPCODE: dir = opendir(dirname); if (dir) { while ((ent=readdir(dir))) { printf("%ld %x\n", ent->d_ino, ent->d_name); record[0] = newSVpv(ent->d_name, 0); record[1] = newSViv((IV)ent->d_ino); PUSHs(newRV_noinc(av_make(2, record))); } closedir(dir); }

At least, I hope that last "newRV_noinc" shouldn't be a "newRV_inc"!
