[gs-devel] perl module for ghostscript API

I just saw your www.ghostscript.com diary entry about
gsapi_exit() calling the C exit. I recognise this problem
The problem with gsapi_exit() calling exit is in
gp_do_exit() within gp_vms.c. This is a VMS only problem.
There are two ways to fix this. One method is to make
gp_do_exit() do nothing. This will stop the C exit() being
called, but the main() function will return 0 for success.
Does VMS accept main returning 0 for success or does it
still require the special values in stdpre.h?
The other way is to have main() call gp_do_exit(), but not
gsapi_exit(). If possible, I'd prefer to drop the old VMS
When you have the perl module finished, would you be
willing to make it available for download from the
Ghostscript contrib directory?
