The attached simple case doesn't capture STDERR in Windows. Seems ok on all other platforms. It's not clear to me if this is a Windows thing you can't do anything about? This is a minimal example of a general issue of not capturing STDERR from XS/external libs in windows.

Thank you for the report. I'll look into it. Even if it can't be avoided, it will need to be added as a known issue. For the record, what version of Windows and what version of Perl did you use? Could you please attach the output of 'perl -V'? -- David

If you add an fflush call after your fprintf, does it work? -- David

It doesn't work. use Inline; Inline->bind( C => << 'CCODE' ); void test_inline1() { printf("test_inline1"); } void test_inline3() { printf("test_inline3"); } void test_inline2() { fprintf(stdout, "test_inline2"); fflush(stdout); } CCODE test_inline1(); test_inline2(); test_inline3(); __RESULT__ test_inline1
