Subject: [boost] Request for Interest in eval
From: Christian Hoermann (0oo0oo0.c_at_[hidden])

This is a request for interest in a C++ header-only eval library.
The main aim of the library is to provide means for calling compiled
C++ functions/methods/constructors from within a script (which does
not have to be compiled). An eval script can take arguments from the
compiled code, as well as return arbitrary values. In order to make
a function/method/constructor work with the library, the user only
has to mention it in an eval header file, which is not unlike a
normal C++ header file. (Although, in an eval header, oftentimes
just the name of the function/method is necessary, rather than the
full prototype.)

For example syntax, documentation and a proof of concept release, see . Note that the release is still very
limited in functionality; conditionals, loops and most operators
are not yet supported.

So, would there be any interest in such a library?
