[ID 19991118.009] small problem
Message ID:
I was in:

and I had trouble compiling the string.c example.  Specifically the

printf("a = %s\n", SvPV(perl_get_sv("a", FALSE), PL_na));

was the trouble maker.  PL_na was undefined.  I did, however, find:

/opt/perl5/lib/CORE/perl.h:EXT STRLEN na;               /* for use in
SvPV when length is Not Applicable */

So I changed the line to the following and it compiles/runs just fine.

printf("a = %s\n", SvPV(perl_get_sv("a", FALSE), na));

perl -V gives:

I am compiling with:

-L/opt/perl5/lib/CORE \
-L/usr/local/lib \
-o $1 $1.c -lperl -lm


I know this isn't a "perl" or "document" bug but I think ironing out
examples helps,
especially for a novice user such as myself.

Thanks for making these examples available!
