I put this off for quite a bit, but I got it working now. This is the third re-write. Enjoy!



Value names must be unique, but everything else can share names. Since that example explains the syntax, I don't need to say much more, but that it is solely line-based, so you can't have multiple statements per line, sorry.

I've thought of several uses, especially as a world saving type format. You make a block for each object in your world, and then load it.

Lines cannot be longer than 512 characters, but you can change that in KaosScript.h, the #define for MAX_LINE_LENGTH.

KaosScript is also loosely typed. Everything is a string until you cast the value. I don't know what happens if you cast a value with letters to an int or float, though. Probably turns to the ASCII values or something.

My next project is a world editor, saving to .kaos files.

Example - in my FPS's format (called Kaos, which KaosScript was made for), loads the player, a plane to stand on, and a box to push around.

This probably won't work with "vanilla" KaosScript. I mean, it will, but it won't do anything, since KaosScript is just a data formatting language. It's very flexible, though, and it's more like XML than anything (not syntatically.)
New: C++ Usage Example
This is an excerpt from my game engine, it's not DarkGDK, but that doesn't apply to this.

"settings" is a struct containing three values indicating whether it's fullscreen or not, and the screen resolution.

Here's the relevant part of the .kaos file, "cfg/XarxesSettings.kaos".

As you can see, the block type isn't necessary. Neither is the block name, but then, how else would you find it?

Cool, Bit strange tho that my engine is called "Chaos" engine (Which im currently developing), and my script system header is ChaosScript.h lol.

Hmm, old thread but anyway.

You are calling many times "new" in different places.
For example KaosBlock *NewBlock = new KaosBlock();

But where are "delete" ? Why there is no destructor in your class?
I think that stuff eats memory and does not return it.
I haven't tested but by looking at the code i think so.

well, new int dosnt take much memory, so saying that it "eats" memory may be unfair.

Keep it simple.
Questions? Mail me

You need to fix the memory leak like Mulderman said. If you use "new" to allocate memory, then you must free it later with the "delete" command, or else there will be memory leaks.
