Extended version of tolua, a tool to integrate C/C++ code with Lua
tolua++ is an extended version of tolua, a tool to integrate C/C++ code with Lua. tolua++ includes new features oriented to c++ such as
- Support for stdstring as a basic type this can be turned off by a command line option.
- Support for class templates
As well as other features and bugfixes.
tolua is a tool that greatly simplifies the integration of C/C++ code with Lua. Based on a cleaned header file or extracts from real header files, tolua automatically generates the binding code to access C/C++ features from Lua. Using Lua API and tag method facilities, tolua maps C/C++ constants, external variables, functions, classes, and methods to Lua.
