On p5p I wind up saying "someone who knows C should..." a lot and "I'm not a C programmer, but...". It's healthy to have people on p5p who are native speakers of Perl to reign in the C and shell programmers when the internals start to leak into their Perl (see the ongoing "Infinity is not MAX_INT!" fun) but I'd like to be more useful with the actual coding. If nothing else then to not distract our overworked real C programmers from doing real work on perl with my silly ideas.
So where's the "C for Perl Programmers" book/tutorial/etc...? There's Simon Cozens' old "Embedding and Extending Perl" book, which is handy, and Advanced Perl Programming has a little bit of C in it, and perlguts. But where's the "explaining C insanity in terms of Perl insanity" book? Or even "C for Dynamic Programmers"?
