GenieCC Genie code generator

September 06, 2009 — BarryK
I'm posting this here, as the main forum is down.

Nicholas has created a "code generator" for Genie. What it does is translate a simplified pseudo-code into Genie code.

If the forum was working, you could download it. Maybe it will come-good soon.

Anyway, to compile it in 4.3beta1 or beta2 requires a couple of modifications:

Build it:

# ./waf configure
# ./waf build

The configure step reports that Vala compiler 0.7.5 or later is required. Puppy only has 0.7.4. However I edited 'wscript' so that it would accept 0.7.4, and it compiles.

However at the second step it was unable to find the gee header files. They are at /usr/include/gee-1.0/gee. So, I created a link:

# ln -s gee-1.0/gee /usr/include/gee

The idea is interesting. If this pseudo-code is simple yet capable, and well documented, then it would make it easy to get into creating Genie apps.
