I'm happy to announce the review-ready new version of Msm (2.0).
Msm is a framework which enables you to build a Finite State Machine
in a straightforward, descriptive and easy-to-use manner.
The generated code is optimized for speed and will force you to use
neither RTTI nor anything virtual.
Msm supports most of UML state machine features:
- state entry/exit
- transition actions/guards
- composite states
- orthogonal regions
- terminate states
- deferred events
- explicit entry/fork
- entry/exit pseudostates
- anonymous transitions
- transition conflicts
and much more.
Msm v2.0 is a redesign of Msm v1.20 and offers a separation beetween
front- and back-ends. There is currently one backend and several
- the same frontend as Msm v1.20
- a variation of this frontend based on functors for actions
- eUML, a boost::proto-based compile-time language allowing you to use
UML notations directly inside your code, thus making writing code from
a state machine diagram easier.
eUML also comes in with a functional programming library similar to
Boost.Phoenix, adapted to state machines.
I'll be happy for any comment.
You can find Msm v2.0 in:
- the vault (http://www.boostpro.com/vault/index.php?directory=Msm)
- the boost sandbox (http://svn.boost.org/svn/boost/sandbox/msm/)
The documentation can be found at libs/msm/doc/index.htm and the code
in the boost/msm subdirectory.
The 1.0 and 1.10 are now retired. To close up the 1.x path, I'll bring
a 1.21 with the latest bugfixes and then retire the 1.20 from the
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
