No, it should be void. The C function doesn't return anything.

#define XSRETURN(off) \ STMT_START { \ const IV tmpXSoff = (off); \ PL_stack_sp = PL_stack_base + ax + (tmpXSoff - 1); \ return; \ } STMT_END

There are two ways of returning to Perl from an XS function:

  • Place it on the Perl stack.
    void foo() { ... mXPUSHs(sv); }
  • Return it from the C function. The typemap will place it on the Perl stack after any conversion and mortalizing it performs.
    SV* foo() { ... return sv; }

The OP's code uses the former approach.

    Indeed. Thanks for the correction.
