Hi, you are mixing up Perl 5 and Perl 6 code. Tools like h2xs won't work in the Perl 6 world, so do this instead:

|#!/usr/bin/env perl6 use soft; use Inline; my sub a_plus_b( Int $a, Int $b ) is inline('C') returns Int {' DLLEXPORT int a_plus_b (int a, int b) { return a + b; } '}| This is actually an example code from Perl 6's Inline module [1]. Sadly, this will only work when a pull request got merged [2]. After that, you would have to reinstall NativeCall and Inline via panda [3].
