is Inline::C able to use the #line directive?
Theoretically yes. But ...
The XS pre-compiler already uses (something like) this to try and make error messages produce by the C compiler relate to line numbers in the .XS file.
Inline::C extracts the source code from the .pl file, places it into an .XS file with some requisite pre- and post-amble, and then pre-compiles that to produce the the .c file. That then gets compiled to build a .dll/.so binary that is then dynamically linked back to the perl binary at runtime.
I don't think anyone has tried to apply two levels of line control simultaneously. I'm not sure we humans would understand the results :)
