I thought I would add a caveat to this thread so others can find it.
I use the Perl API on Windows with Visual Studio C++.
While moving from Perl 5.8 to 5.20 the Perl API headers generated compile time errors.
The first error was:
c:\perl.5.20\lib\core\op_reg_common.h(58) : error C2144: syntax error
+: 'void' should be preceded by ';'
SE keywords: op_reg_common.h void preceded
Someone in the IRC irc.perl.org #xs chat channel referenced here.
Basically I needed to edit the config.h file from
#define PERL_STATIC_INLINE static __inline__ /**/
#define PERL_STATIC_INLINE static __inline /**/
I don't know why it wasn't defined with ifdefs for each compiler.
