 RE: AW: [Threedsia-dev] Python From: Eric Bresie - 2001-01-25 23:53 ```I think for consistancy, it might be desirable to define an interface that bindings to specific languages can be defined. A good example of this is SAX (Simple API for XML) which is an API specification which allows for binding to many different languages, all of which make the same calls. What kind of interfaces do we need to interact with a scripting language? I would assume we need some way of interfacing with the odb server, which may be a good source of scripting language bindings. From this, the odb may allow us to handle the filling the visual stuff which are defined in a descriptive section which could be partiually provided by the scripting language. Using scripting languages which have to be interpretted, has always been one of the bottle next in using a scripting language like that. Since if within 3Dsia you call a python script, then you have to instanciate a python interpretter, execute the code, and interface with the 3Dsia code. Crystal Space still has python support in it...just as a side reference.
