Lsie (Elsie) is a Lindenmayer system implementation written in C++.

It supports bracketed, stochastic, context sensitive, parametric, conditional grammars with parameter signature matching, homomorphism and decomposition.

Expression evaluation and signature matching is based on an internal bytecode compiler and interpreter, types are statically checked at compile time. It may seem a bit overkill, but it is fun to write and it has some practical advantages. :)

The project is work in progress. Basically it is a toy, it is not optimized nor thoroughly tested, and it supports only few built-in types. I have written it just for experimenting and to try some ideas.

It runs on Windows and Linux. You will need to have Flex/Bison and GMTL to compile it.
