dbp has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm looking into embedding C into perl using XS. What are the best places to look for info and examples on this topic? Currently, I'm consulting the standard docs such as perlxs(1), perlxstut(1), perlguts(1), and the like. Also, I have read the pertinent chapters in Programming Perl and the Perl Cookbook. I've also looked at Dean Roehrich's cookbook, which has great examples, but little explanation. Know any friendly intros to XS that also delve into more complicated topics like passing data types between perl and c?
