A new version of wxJS (JavaScript wxWidgets) is released at http://wxjs.sourceforge.net. You can use wxJS to write scripts in JavaScript (like you do with Perl for example) using the power of wxWidgets classes. extract.js is a good example on what you can do with wxJS. This script extracts the documentation from the c++ source files and generates the html documentation files.

There is also an expiremental Apache module mod_wxjs which makes it possible to write dynamic web pages with JavaScript and wxWidgets classes.

The next release will focus on building wxJS with MingW (using eclipse/CDT). When this succeeds, the next step will be to build wxJS on Linux (currently, wxJS is only build on Windows)

Franky.

I used to love JS, and I'm just wondering... how is your script going to be interpreted?

The script is interpreted by the wxJS.exe program or by mod_wxjs when used on an Apache server. When you have your own JS runtime, it's also possible to load the DLL's from your own C/C++ programs.
