This is a great module! Should be standard for all XS packages... and ideally also standard arguments to specify INCLUDE/LIB search paths in Makefile.PL should exist... One suggestion though: I saw that there is a simple, but hardcoded print $ch "int main(void) { return 0; }\n"; in the code. Why not make that an option parameter in the assert_lib() function? I.e., allow the user to specify own code (the body in main { ...}). This would allow to add more meaningful code for the library, so that e.g. also the existance of symbols in the library can be tested in the link step. I can work on a patch for this, if you'd prefer not to implement it yourself. All the best, Marek
This will be in 0.7, which is currently under development
