Hello,

Is parallax planning to make a command line Windows executable with only the SPIN compiler in it?

I'd like to make a program where the user can configure the program to be send to the prop.

Kind regards,
Robot Freak

Previous statements have been a clear NO.

Yet, significant work has been done already (spincc on sourceforge) and I believe we are not that far off.

@ rokicki : An update on progress, where you've got to, what works and doesn't, would be quite welcome I think.

Essentially, the parser looks to be coming along nicely, but no work recently on it.

From parser to code should be relatively straightforward.

If anyone else wants to help, take a look at the source, build and run, and let me know
what you think.

Code is at

http://spinc.cvs.sourceforge.net/spinc/spinparser/

To check it out with cvs, use




cvs -dhttp://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/tongue.gifserver:anonymous@spinc.cvs.sourceforge.n et:/cvsroot/spinc login
cvs -z3 -dhttp://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/tongue.gifserver:anonymous@spinc.cvs.sourceforge.n et:/cvsroot/spinc co -P spinparser




If anyone has troubles just let me know.

(All the work has been done by dfletcher.)

The parser was coming along nicely. It still has a lot of problems but is getting there. I don't think that dfletcher (developer) or I (breaker of parser http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif ) have had much time to work on it recently :(.

Someone also did some work on getting it to compile in Visual Studio. I started to put together an X-Code project for it but haven't had time to finish it yet.

If there is anyone else with experience in these things help would be appreciated.

We have been working on this in the background for a couple months actually.· Not sure if anyone noticed, but ImageCraft's Propeller C compiler includes a DLL called Propellent which is really version 0.6 of this software I speak of "Propellent."· And that version was just a downloader; we hadn't gotten the compiler wrapped into it yet.

Last night we released the official v1.0 Propellent software, which is a·library (DLL) and also an executable that includes the library within it.· The executable is what Robot Freak was asking for; a command-line Windows executable with the SPIN compiler (and much more) in it.· The DLL is for those that wish to build their own tool that has built-in Propeller support (of course, they could use the exe for many of the same purposes if they wish, but the DLL is better in that regard).

Thanks.
