You asked for opinions on your GnuStep Foundation Classes / Lua
bindings project -- I say hooray!
I know a few other software engineers that I work with that will
welcome the project as well and look forward to using the
GnuStep Foundation classes in Lua.
BTW, our latest development platform of choice is a Mac OS X
host with a Linux guest running in "Parallels", and using Xcode
IDE, Objective-C, NextStep/GnuStep, and Lua (among other
things). Cross-platform development on Mac OSX (BSD Unix on
MacTel) and deploy on embedded Linux targets. -- So we are
kindred spirits with you and your efforts.

I'm starting to craft a GnuStep Foundation classes binding to Lua. This
will indirectly compete with (cover the same area) as the POSIX modules
discussed here a while back. The reasons I am doing this:
- Foundation is native on OS X, so it's kind of close to my heart :)
- Foundation is supported (via GnuStep) on Linux, Win32 and more so it's
- The APIs are stable, tested and well documented
- I just finished reading an Objective-C book, which has clear samples
This email is but a pre-warning that the work is proceeding, and perhaps
a gentle query for opinions from people who're interested to follow by.
The module will be available for any Lua 5.1 and I'll be making a fink
package out of it. No exposure to Objective-C will be required in order
to use it!
Cheers, and Happy 2007 to You All! :)
