NAME

       FFI::Platypus::Type::StringPointer - Convert a pointer to a string and back

VERSION

       version 0.83

SYNOPSIS

       In your C code:

        void
        string_pointer_argument(const char **string)
        {
          ...
        }
        const char **
        string_pointer_return(void)
        {
          ...
        }

       In your Platypus::FFI code:

        use FFI::Platypus;

        my $ffi = FFI::Platypus->new;
        $ffi->load_custom_type('::StringPointer' => 'string_pointer');

        $ffi->attach(string_pointer_argument => ['string_pointer'] => 'void');
        $ffi->attach(string_pointer_return   => [] => 'string_pointer');

        my $string = "foo";

        string_pointer_argument(\$string); # $string may be modified

        $ref = string_pointer_return();

        print $$ref;  # print the string pointed to by $ref

DESCRIPTION

       NOTE: As of version 0.61, this custom type is now deprecated since pointers to strings are
       supported in the FFI::Platypus directly without custom types.

       This module provides a FFI::Platypus custom type for pointers to strings.
