|=head1 NAME
|perlapi - autogenerated documentation for the perl public API
|X<Perl API> X<API> X<api>
|This file contains most of the documentation of the perl public API, as
|generated by F<embed.pl>.  Specifically, it is a listing of functions,
|macros, flags, and variables that may be used by extension writers.  Some
|specialized items are instead documented in $specialized_docs.
|L<At the end|/Undocumented functions> is a list of functions which have yet
|to be documented.  Patches welcome!  The interfaces of these are subject to
|change without notice.
|Anything not listed here is not part of the public API, and should not be
|used by extension writers at all.  For these reasons, blindly using functions
|listed in proto.h is to be avoided when writing extensions.
|In Perl, unlike C, a string of characters may generally contain embedded
|C<NUL> characters.  Sometimes in the documentation a Perl string is referred
|to as a "buffer" to distinguish it from a C string, but sometimes they are
|both just referred to as strings.
|Note that all Perl API global variables must be referenced with the C<PL_>
|prefix.  Again, those not listed here are not to be used by extension writers,
|and can be changed or removed without notice; same with macros.
|Some macros are provided for compatibility with the older,
|unadorned names, but this support may be disabled in a future release.
|Perl was originally written to handle US-ASCII only (that is characters
|whose ordinal numbers are in the range 0 - 127).
|And documentation and comments may still use the term ASCII, when
|sometimes in fact the entire range from 0 - 255 is meant.
|The non-ASCII characters below 256 can have various meanings, depending on
|various things.  (See, most notably, L<perllocale>.)  But usually the whole
|range can be referred to as ISO-8859-1.  Often, the term "Latin-1" (or
|"Latin1") is used as an equivalent for ISO-8859-1.  But some people treat
|"Latin1" as referring just to the characters in the range 128 through 255, or
|somethimes from 160 through 255.
|This documentation uses "Latin1" and "Latin-1" to refer to all 256 characters.
|Note that Perl can be compiled and run under either ASCII or EBCDIC (See
|L<perlebcdic>).  Most of the documentation (and even comments in the code)
|ignore the EBCDIC possibility.
|For almost all purposes the differences are transparent.
|As an example, under EBCDIC,
|instead of UTF-8, UTF-EBCDIC is used to encode Unicode strings, and so
|whenever this documentation refers to C<utf8>
|(and variants of that name, including in function names),
|it also (essentially transparently) means C<UTF-EBCDIC>.
|But the ordinals of characters differ between ASCII, EBCDIC, and
|the UTF- encodings, and a string encoded in UTF-EBCDIC may occupy a different
|number of bytes than in UTF-8.
|The listing below is alphabetical, case insensitive.
