in reply to Other programming language I most often use

Wish SQL had been a choice, or [b-z]?a?sh =)

Since I picked "C" I'd just like to say _OH DEAR GOD WHY MUST C BE THE DEFAULT LANGUAGE THAT EVERY BOZO WRITES IN_? I'm going absolutely insane trying to figure out why I get a core in "malloc" when a program is called from a XS'ed shared object, but the same program works fine on the command line.

/me glares at the _65_ lines that have "free" in them in one ".c" file... *sigh* oh woe is me =)

    This is a common symptom if the argument marshalling goes wrong.
    Wrap C routines into a library, and link it to a C driver which calls the routines. And it executes without any problem.
    But using the same library, write the required glue XS code, then link it together to create a shared module. Load the module and call the function. Coredump.
      Oooh that does sound nasty, my mistake was much nastier...
      double *result = NULL; /* oops did I null the pointer or what it pointed too? =P */

      Very sad that I spent a day of my life debugging good code because I felt the need to initialize my pointers. (That will teach me to never initialize anything in C *laugh* <--- not serious, I'm not using C any more... =)
