RE: Future plans ...

Hi,

Bitlib will be in, but I have been having trouble getting Alien to work properly on Win32 due to the fact I use GCC/MingW (works great on Mac/Linux).

Have you looked at luasys? While there is an overlap with functionality already in murgaLua there are a few intresting things in it. The mem part, the io part, event and thread. Also rings could be a cool thing.

Maybe some of the mem, io and event stuff may be interesting ... But I want to shy away from providing functionality that is too complex of troublesome ... Threads for instance, they are cool, but will prove VERY problematic when used with FLTK and other things, so I rather leave them out.

This way the offscreen buffer could be manipulated directly. Immutable strings are a real pain in the butt for image manipulation. (O.K. as long a there are pixel functions available it isn't that big of a problem)

Better memory/buffer handling is on the list.

I also still can't add anything to the main fltk event loop (Fl.add_idle() and co. are missing).

Let me know what other functions you need are missing.

Also there is some (fltk) functionality that can't be accessed in murgaLua. It might be possible to add functions to register lua wrapper functions as virtual functions. for example my_widget:register(resize,myresize) or something in that direction.

That would be nice for quite a few things, but currently it would require me to profoundly change things, although I'll have a think about how I'd go about doing that ... Without making things too complex.

BTW.: I don't know if I'm the only one, who has that problem, but readline seems still broken in murgaLua 0.6.6

The dynamic binaries in the "otherBuilds" should have readline enabled ... At least, they did when I last tested.

Cheers
