Mark Stroetzel Glasberg from Tecgraf will probably kill me for blurting this
out, but, I'm not sure that not having wxLua is such a huge issue right now.
The reason I say this is that Mark created a windows binary of IUPLua and has
been kind enough to let me play with it for the last few days. I have been
writing a small app using it, and, so far, I don't miss wxLua at all.
IUP and Lua seem to fit together pretty well. All of the widget attributes
are in tables, so configuring them is pretty easy. So far, it reminds me a
little bit of Tcl/Tk, without having to write so much packing code.
The coolest widget I have used so far is the matrix. It is a multi-column
listbox (like a spreadsheet) that is editable! It automatically sprouts
scroll-bars as needed. Very cool!
The docs are pretty good, although I do have a few questions as I learn it.
I may have overloaded Mark with questions, as I haven't heard back from him
in a couple of days. But, his responses have been very friendly and helpful.
