my name is Juergen Fuhrmann, I am responsible for the design of
pdelib, a tool box for the numerical solution of partial differential
equations. Some months ago, we decided to adopt FLTK as GUI toolkit,
and I still feel it was the right decision.
Another basic component of our package is Lua, so there is the
question if putting them together. So there is LuaFLTK of Jay Carlson,
but neither me or he seems to have the time to bring it up to date, as
it is quite complex.
Then, I discovered the forms compatibility header. This was a quite
easy case for tolua, a tool which binds C/C++ code to Lua, so now I
have several of the old 1992 Forms demos running in Lua. For our
purpose this is a great option. Hopefully I will find time to make it
available as a separate package.
Now my question: what are the plans for the forms compatibility layer
of FLTK. Will it be maintained in 1.2.x/2.x ?
