Enlightenment Introduces Eolian, EFL C Generator
The newest component to the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL) is Eolian, an EO object parser and C code generator.
Hitting the EFL core libraries this morning by Samsung was the new Eolian component and there were many subsequent commits, including its C Generator abilities.
Eolian parses Enlightenment's meta-data (.eo) files and can then generate C code along with header files. From the EFL 1.8 documentation about EO, "Inside of EFL a new Object model is being created, called Eo. This starts to unify the ad-hoc object systems EFL has had and begins a journey on the way to EFL 2.0, providing interfaces, multiple-inheritance, unified callback prototypes, introspection and weak and strong references among other things. Currently Eo is not considered Stable as an API, but functions solidly. It also adds benefits of removing direct pointer access to existing EFL objects and puts them behind a table indirection which should remove any crashes when it comes to accessing invalid object handles."
