I would like the community's opinion on this subject to see if it's a worthwhile project to pursue. For a while now, I've been thinking about creating a program that lets you write LSL scripts in another programming language, such as Python, or Java. With such a thing, you could introduce new abstractions to LSL like classes, dictionaries, switch statements, and shortcuts for tedious code. However, there's a lot of differences between these languages, so there would be some inescapable oddities like requiring typecasts on list items. I'm confident that I would be able to create this tool by myself, but I would like to know what other people think of such an idea. Which source language would people prefer to use for writing LSL scripts? Thanks for your time!
First, I will say: This really is not a rant, not at all. I'm being responsible & making a gesture for responsible community interaction & development. I am making & releasing a Composits HUD on the Marketplace, with the OcculTek Store. The scripts will be modifiable. The object will be no transfer. The intention of making the scripts modifiable is so that other developers can use the Composits HUD in their own creations. Note about GPL: A bunch of American attorneys & judges get tripped up & "believe they merely act dumb" about GPL. It's really obvious that's not a legal license, not at all. It doesn't matter whom touches my work before or after me, I have a right to earn a financial reward for my work. We're talking about programming languages & science, & accomplishing a task. It's like folk songs at best: GCD, GCD Chord progressions, & nearly all folk musicians have their own song with a GCD progression. It's like Gravity in truth: You can't tell me that you own Gravity, not at all, & you surely can't tell me that I don't own my own fair share of it!! I will release the scripts for the Composits HUD, along with other comments specific to the Composits HUD itself within this posted column of appended & separate post upon releasing the Composits HUD in my Store. It'll be priced moderately. It's quite a lot of effort to write out details about people acting with common integrity & respect. Really, it's simple: Don't give my stuff away for free, not at all. You can modify it & use it in your own creations, though it's mine & I have a right to earn a financial reward for my work. So do you. Treat me with respect. That's the point.
