jithoosin has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi monks,
i need to return a series of strings from perl subroutine to C file which calls it. The problem is that if i use "return" once the control goes back to C file . How to return one string after another from perl to C. By saying "one string after another" i mean previously i used print statements to print output to STDOUT. Now i need to take each of these print statements and return values to C. I am using PERL STACK to return the values

    I'm not sure I understand the question, but would returning a pointer to an AV of SVs containing your strings work? (In Perl terms, this is a reference to an array of strings.)

      Hi , your understanding of the question and the answer was exactly correct
