"cint" is a C/C++ interpreter which has following features.
* Support K&R-C, ANSI-C, ANSI-C++
Cint has 80-90% coverage on K&R-C, ANSI-C and C++ language constructs.
(Multiple inheritance, virtual function, function overloading, operator
overloading, default parameter, template, etc..) Cint is solid enough
to interpret its own source code. Cint is not aimed to be a 100%
ANSI/ISO compliant C++ language processor. It rather is a portable
script language environment which is close enough to the standard C++.
* Interpretation & Native Code Execution can be mixed
Depending on speed and interactiveness requirement, you can mix Native
Code execution and interpretation. "makecint" makes it possible to
encapsulate arbitrary C/C++ object as a precompiled library. Precompiled
library can be configured as a Dynamic Link Library. Access between
interpreted code and precompiled code can be done seamlessly in both
* Single-Language solution
Cint/makecint is a Single-Language environment. It works with any
ANSI-C/C++ compiler to provide the interpreter environment on top of it.
* Bridge between serious programmers and other professionals
Cint is meant to be a bridging tool between software and non-software
professionals. C++ looks rather easy under the interpreter environment.
It helps non-software professionals to talk in the same language to
their software counterpart. Today's System-On-Silicon evolution demands
integration and standardization of design tools in software, hardware, IC
and system design processes. Cint is a key enabling technology to this
* Dynamic C++
Cint is dynamic. It can process C++ statements from command line,
dynamically define/erase class definition and functions, load/unload
source files and Dynamic Link Library. Extended Run Time Type
Identification mechanism is provided. This will allow you to explore
unthinkable way of using C++.
* Built-in Debugger, class browser
Cint has a built-in debugger with an extensive capability to debug
complex C++ execution flow. Text base class browser is a part of the
Various kinds of computer platforms are supported. As of 2015,
Cint works on Windows-7/8, Linux 32/64bit and MacOS-10 64bit.
