in reply to size of scalar returned by POPp in perlEmbed

'perldoc perlapi' says
POPp

Pops a string off the stack. Deprecated. New code should provide a STRLEN n_a and use POPpx.

update: so something like
STRLEN n_a; char* stringy; stringy = POPpx;
Now n_a contains the length of stringy , and you can do whatever from there.

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
