I found this question in the archive but there weren't any replies. Since I am having trouble I'll ask again.
 
I have this bit of perl code :
 
$arg1;
@test=();
variant::argTest1(\$arg1, "Testing...", \@test);
printf STDOUT "$test[0],$test[1],$test[2], $test[3], $test[4]\n";
 
and this C code :
 
void ms::argTest1(std::string& arg1,
                 const std::string& arg2,
                 VariantMultiArray& v)
{
    // The VariantMultiArray is just a wrapper on the boost::multi_array

    cout << "In argtest 1 ..." << endl;
    arg1=std::string("Ralph");
    v.resize(1,4);
    v(0,0) = Variant_t(std::string("Tommy"));
    v(0,1) = Variant_t(std::string("Donna"));
    v(0,2) = Variant_t(std::string("Carly"));
    v(0,3) = Variant_t(std::string("Tricia"));
}
 
My problem is that I can't get the values in from my VariantMultiArray back to perl. I have tried _numerous_  typemaps none of which work. My question is : is it possble to have a function that takes a perl array reference, manipulate thatr reference and have the values returned to perl. I know that the C code generated by Swig does in fact contain the correct values in the VariantMultiArray.
 
Any thoughts, comments are appreciated. The posting date of the original question was 2006-01-08,
 
Thanks,
