Even if you learned C in a classroom at some point, Perl's "XS" API for writing perl subs in something purported to be C but is really a cat on a tablet with caps lock on. In this talk I will show how easy it is to write subs in plain C without any of that dreaded stuff in perlxs.pod. It is so easy you will never ever ever, really ever, use XS ever again :D
