Subject [PROPOSAL] apr-luascript
Date Sat, 29 Sep 2001 18:13:30 GMT
Hi all,

I wish to propose a new library for apr-utils.

I've been working on many different projects, and there was almost no one
that didn't need some kind of user intervention. One of the obvious ones are
the 'config' files. The other is using Perl or shell scripts just to alter
the few lines of some 'makefile' or 'include'. Well neither Perl or shell is
available on the all targeted platforms, so we are (more or less) using
different scripting technologies on each platform that we support. I'm not
speaking here about apr or apr-util building process itself.

I'm using Lua (http://www.lua.org) for some time, and found that it's stable
and MOST of all portable. The language itself is build to be the embeddable
an in it's 4.1 alpha version is around 200K in source size, and it doesn't
use yacc, or whatever LARL.

I have the working Lua interpreter bounded inside apr that uses only apr*.h
to compile, and uses apr_file_* interface instead FILE.

The Lua licence itself is IMO acceptable to ASF.
