EGSL is a small interpreter which can execute Lua scripts. It includes some functions for fast and easy game development. These are image manipulation functions, functions for 2D drawing, sound and music, input via mouse, keyboard, and joypad, and some helper functions. The engine is based on SDL, SDL_gfx, and SDL_mixer, and additionally on SDL_image on Haiku-OS.
Lua is a great programming language that prides itself on ANSI C portability, small size, simplicity, and ease of embedding. Due to these goals, the official Lua distribution cannot provide features common to popular stand-alone scripting languages. The goal of the LuaCheia project is to make a full-featured language based on Lua that makes it more usable as a stand-alone language.
Spirit is an object-oriented, recursive descent parser generator framework implemented using template meta-programming techniques. Expression templates allow Spirit to approximate the syntax of Extended Backus Normal Form (EBNF) completely in C++. The Spirit framework enables a target grammar to be written exclusively in C++. EBNF grammar specifications can mix freely with other C++ code and, thanks to the generative power of C++ templates, are immediately executable.
