Pull Request: CInterface Update


Recommended Posts

Pull request: https://github.com/GarageGames/Torque3D/pull/2136

Branch: https://github.com/lukaspj/Torque3D/tree/cinterface-update

The PR seeks to update the CInterface, which was left in order to integrate JavaScript with T3D.

My main issues with the existing solution was that it still used the TorqueScript console for method calls, which is inefficient compared to calling functions directly. Also it didn't really work any more.

Furthermore, this CInterface seeks to transfer the control of method-lookups and the like from the console to the script that interfaces with the engine.

Main issues that needs to be addressed:

Script->Cinterface calls

In the codeInterpreter.cpp, TorqueScript calls the CInterface, this code should be reviewed / verified:


In console.cpp, the CInterface is called before the console is inquired about evaluation of the function call. This should be reviewed / verified:


Cinterface->Engine calls

In engineTypes.h, the ValueType of EngineStructTypeTraits has been changed, despite the fact there was a clear reason that it had the original type to begin with. This should be reviewed / verified:

I missed this it seems 🙂

But if you just want C and T3D then no reason to do any fancy stuff, you can just call functions directly from C.
The biggest issue for you would be going the other way, but that should be easy to overcome let me know if you need any help, I'm pretty hung up with kids and work though so I'm easier to reach through Discord.
