Embedding Perl into your applications
Tuesday January 27th 2004 at 7:00pm
College of DuPage, SRC 1450a
Adding "scriptability" to a graphical application can greatly enhance
its usability and value. Unfortunately not enough Windows applications
provide this functionality. We will discuss a general framework that
can be used to add scripting (PERL) to a Windows application,
Basics of using XS
Integrating XS compilation into the IDE build environment (Visual Studio .NET)
Embedding the Perl engine in the application
Notifying the UI of changes made from a script
Using scripts to create Undo/Redo stacks
Born in 1969, educated at the University of Illinois (BSEE
1992). Geoff started his career at Xilinx, an FPGA company in San
Jose. After a variety of technical jobs and a brief stint teaching
junior college, he started UB Computer in Downers Grove, IL. UB has
written a huge variety of software, including financial trading tools,
FPGA design automation tools, and a warehouse management system. UB
also develops digital systems using Xilinx FPGAs. Geoff hates talking
about himself in the third person. Geoff feels like Bob Dole right
now. In my free time I like to party with my friends and family, coach
wrestling, and fly airplanes.
