Please eyeball the first graphic here:
The text in the left column is Ruby. Pretend it were Lua.
The graphic in the right is just a model. Pretend it were a game.
Has anyone developed a "Lua Console" for the PC version of a game, such
that designers could author tests by writing Lua into a little text
editor, and get instant feedback from gameplay in an attached window?
Not that I am aware, but there is a lot in game studios that is
developed but never released outside...
Nick Trout's Doris Viewer <http://doris.sourceforge.net/> can be a
starting point for this, if using 3D (OpenGL).
Paul Jessup's Freya <http://www.geekzine.net/freya/> can be a starting
point for this, if using 2D (Allegro).
I believe there is also a SDL library, etc.
But the hard part, ie. the GUI with two windows, etc., is still to be made.
