( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
hi, I am trying to compile this program
#include <EXTERN.h> #include <perl.h> static PerlInterpreter *my_perl; int main(int argc, char **argv, char **env) { char *args[] = { NULL }; PERL_SYS_INIT3(&argc,&argv,&env); my_perl = perl_alloc(); perl_construct(my_perl); perl_parse(my_perl, NULL, argc, argv, NULL); PL_exit_flags |= PERL_EXIT_DESTRUCT_END; /*** skipping perl_run() ***/ call_argv("showtime", G_DISCARD | G_NOARGS, args); perl_destruct(my_perl); perl_free(my_perl); PERL_SYS_TERM(); }
but I get the following error
g++ fn-test.cpp -o t 'perl -MExtUtils::Embed -e ccopts -e ldopts' g++: perl -MExtUtils::Embed -e ccopts -e ldopts: No such file or direc +tory fn-test.cpp:2:24: fatal error: EXTERN.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated.
I am working on ubuntu so I went into cpan and ran
force install ExtUtils::Embed
it did it's thing for a while and now when I try to compile again, I get the same error. This is my first time trying to call a Perl program from C++, so any tips would be helpful.
