gtknode 0.15 is now hosted on Google Code

The development of gtknode, the Erlang binding for the GTK+ library, is now hosted as a Google Code project. gtknode was previously included in the Jungerl collection of Erlang code on Sourceforge. The version on Google Code (version 0.15) is the latest version from Mats Cronqvist, the author of gtknode. This version includes my improvements … [Read more…]

Dryverl version 0.1

I have made the first official release of Dryverl: Dryverl version 0.1. An example “Hello World” Erlang-to-C binding’s specification and test program are included in that release. I have spent my afternoon finishing the configuration and build process based on GNU Autoconf, Automake and Libtools: the dryverl-0.1.tar.gz archive file is built automatically from the SVN … [Read more…]

Official announcement of the Dryverl project

I officially announce the creation of the Dryverl project. Dryverl is an Erlang-to-C binding “assembly language”. Dryverl lets you specify and control in details all the steps of a Erlang-to-C function call, while hiding implementation details and making it much easier to implement a binding than writing it by hand. The Dryverl “compiler” is implemented … [Read more…]

Patch to the Erlang Driver Toolkit

I am creating an Erlang-binding for the GSS API version 2.1 (IETF‘s RFC 2743 and RFC 2744). I am wrapping the GSS API C-binding functions in an Erlang port driver. The purpose is to be able to use GSS API implementations such as MIT Kerberos, Heimdal, GNU Shishi and Globus’ GSI in Erlang programs. And … [Read more…]

Autoconf macros for Erlang support committed into Autoconf’s CVS

My Autoconf macros for Erlang applications configuration have been committed intoAutoconf’s CVS repository. The final macros are a little different from my original proposal: all macros now have the AC_ERLANG_ prefix, instead of the ERLANG_ prefix. These macros will be included in the next release of Autoconf (version 2.95c). Until this version is released, one … [Read more…]

Release of gtkNode 0.1 and of the gtknode Debian package

I have refactored gtkNode, the Erlang interface to GTK+ 2, which I have been “playing with” recently. The most significant is that I have used GNU Autoconf and Automake to redo the configuration and build framework. I have used my Autoconf macros for Erlang in gtkNode’s configure.ac configuration file, to simplify configuration. To compile the source … [Read more…]
