Thread: Box2d wrapper for Pascal?

    Box2d wrapper for Pascal?

    Hi all,
    I have been looking at the free open source 2d physics library http://www.box2d.org/, and was wondering if anyone has ported it to Pascal, or made a usable wrapper so one can use it under Pascal?

    I am thinking of trying to make a wrapper for it.

    I managed to compile it as a dynamic "libbox2d.a" file, and static "libbox2d.o" file, but I don't think I will be able to use any "objects" from it directly without translating it first...

    I am going to try though :-)

    cheers,
    Paul

    Box2d wrapper for Pascal?

    I took a brief look at the source during my biology lessons :roll:

    I think the Box2D header looks very clean and can be used without any difficulties.

    =X Delphi 2005 or superior needed

    but looking at the source code, the new features delphi 2005 or superior are very insteresting for that kind of code


    ps: works with FPC ?

    aaagh... maybe we have to modify the source a bit, so it's usable in Delphi 5 and up (Still lot of us use D5, D6, D7 etc)

    Why is it D2005 and up?

    From the readme file in the download:

    "Delphi 2006 or later only
    =========================

    This Delphi port only compiles on Delphi 2006 or later. One of the reasons not
    to support older Delphi versions, is that the HGE C++ code uses operator
    overloading and methods within records, which are not supported in earlier
    Delphi verions."

    It could be converted to D5, but I imagine it will be a bit of work to restructure things.

    cheers,

    Operator overloading, Static methods, Constructor on Records (this one is veryyyy usefull)

    and some more

    i will need a good work on the code (60%) to convert then to older delphi versions
