=head1 NAME

FFI::Platypus::API - Platypus arguments and return value API for custom types

=head1 VERSION

version 2.05

=head1 SYNOPSIS

 package FFI::Platypus::Type::MyCustomType;
 
 use FFI::Platypus::API;
 
 sub ffi_custom_type_api_1
 {
   {
     native_type => 'uint32',
     perl_to_native => sub {
       my($value, $i) = @_;
       # Translates ($value) passed in from Perl
       # into ($value+1, $value+2)
       arguments_set_uint32($i, $value+1);
       arguments_set_uint32($i+1, $value+2);
     },
     argument_count => 2,
   }
 }

=head1 DESCRIPTION

B<NOTE>: I added this interface early on to L<FFI::Platypus>, but haven't
used it much, generally finding function wrappers to be a more powerful
(although possibly not as fast) interface.  It has thus not been
tested as much as the rest of Platypus.  If you feel the need to use
this interface please coordinate with the Platypus developers.

The custom types API for L<FFI::Platypus> allows you to set multiple C
arguments from a single Perl argument as a common type.  This is
sometimes useful for pointer / size pairs which are a common pattern in
C, but are usually represented by a single value (a string scalar) in
Perl.

The custom type API is somewhat experimental, and you should expect some
changes as needs arise (I won't break compatibility lightly, however).

=head1 FUNCTIONS

These functions are only valid within a custom type callback.
