Writing a script engine

Recommended Posts

I was kinda curious as to how about I would go about writing a scripting system, especially for a RPG. I''m not advanced to write a game that uses script, but I''ve been curious ever since I heard of the concept. I looked at a recent article on Gamedev and it pretty said how I thought a script would be used, but in VB. An important function was called "CallByName()" or something, which let you call a function with a string. So after all this, I have two questions: - Is there a way to call a function using a string in C++? - Is there a good site where I can learn about scripts, specifically RPGs in C++? Alright, thanks in advance Peon

Just noticed there were some other topics on the same subject, but just to clarify, I''d rather learn to do my own scripting than use Python (actually, I''m not familliar with Python, but I''d rather learn the hard way )

Basically, I want to use this system to write text, make characters move, triggers (similar to SC, probably not so...good ), etc...
