Why I started to work on a separate parser and didn't used the reference implementation coming from Eric Lengyel?
- When working on the OpenGEX-importer I saw that a OpenDDL-parser would be a really useful tool
- I wanted to have it on github ( for issue tracking releases etc. ).
- For reproducing issues I wanted to have a automated test suite
- The reference implementation coming from here http://openddl.org/ is good for readability and understandability, but I wanted to play around with it on my own just for fun
I pre-released it as Alpha.
