Scripting languages - Squirrel

Posted on:July 07 2006

Lately I played a bit around with Squirrel, an embeddable scripting language. It has a very friendly license (zlib- same as Irrlicht), a nice design, cool interface, and is fast and small. The language itself looks like C/C++ code, so its very easy to actually use it. Definately recommendable.
Why I'm into scripting languages? You'll see, I think I'll blog somthing about it soon.

Scripting in Irrlicht? *Puppy Eyes*
Now preparing to wait for confirmation...
Oh, and when are you going to release IrreEdit 0.2 + Irrlicht 1.1?

Pretty fast, but lua-JIT is faster than anything :\

Is it just me, or Ruby is more beautiful and easier?

No way, Squirrel is by far the best scripting language if seen for a while (for using games).
You should give SqPlus a look niko. Has some nice enhancements ;)

interesting! i am looking forward to hearing your plan. :)

...and what about irrlicht.net? many scripting languages support .net in the meantime.

Looks interesting. I personally like Python, not because of the syntax so much as the Stackless port (i.e. cooperative concurrent multitasking Python). The Squirrel syntax is actually closer to what I would like (I'm primarily a C++/Java developer).

Curiosity is piqued as to what your project is :)

looks like Nico has fallen for the wxWidgets port to Squirrel,
so he only has to create Irrlicht Bindings for the Editor.
