RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for xs::typemap (redhat section 3pm)

XS::Typemap(3pm)		 Perl Programmers Reference Guide		 XS::Typemap(3pm)

NAME
       XS::Typemap - module to test the XS typemaps distributed with perl

SYNOPSIS
	 use XS::Typemap;

	 $output = T_IV( $input );
	 $output = T_PV( $input );
	 @output = T_ARRAY( @input );

DESCRIPTION
       This module is used to test that the XS typemaps distributed with perl are working as
       advertised. A function is available for each typemap definition (eventually). In general
       each function takes a variable, processes it through the OUTPUT typemap and then returns
       it using the INPUT typemap.

       A test script can then compare the input and output to make sure they are the expected
       values. When only an input or output function is provided the function will be named after
       the typemap entry and have either '_IN' or '_OUT' appended.

       All the functions are exported. There is no reason not to do this since the entire purpose
       is for testing Perl. Namespace pollution will be limited to the test script.

NOTES
       This module is for testing only and should not normally be installed.
