P5NCI::Declare - declarative syntax for P5NCI bindings


  use P5NCI::Declare library => 'shared_library';

  sub perl_function :NCI( c_function => 'vii' );

  perl_function( 101, 77 );


P5NCI::Declare allows you to bind Perl functions to C functions with subroutine attributes.

When you use this module, you must pass: the key library where the value is the name of the shared library you want to load (following the normal P5NCI conventions). You may pass an optional path key, where the value is the path to the library.

To bind a Perl function name to a C function, use a subroutine declaration with the NCI attribute. The attribute takes a pair where the key is the name of the function and the value is its P5NCI signature.
