ExtUtils-ParseXS (2.2206)

This module's documentation is pretty interesting. First of all, the only meaningful function which it documents is "process_xs", and yet no such function exists in the module. This is followed by a list of "named parameters" such as this:

C++
Adds extern "C" to the C code. Default is false.

Yeah, and actually looking at the source code we find:

# 'C++' => 0, # Doesn't seem to *do* anything...

Pity the fool who trusts this documentation.

Finally, the coup de grace is delivered by this:

s
I have no clue what this does. Strips function prefixes?

Fortunately or not, in fact "s" doesn't even exist in the module any more.
