Angelscript to C++ translator

Recommended Posts

I'm sporting the idea of having a Angelscript to C++ automatic translator. I know it's not an easy task and not everything can be translated, however I have an idea how to do it. Is anyone interested working on this with me as a paid job?

I tried the AOT compiler however it produces hundreds of gigabytes (not joking) of c++ code. You can imagine that is useless.

 

Most of the code I'd like to translate is pretty straightforward. For example, here you just need to change @ to *.

void onTick( CMap@ this )
{
	// local player check end

	 CBlob@ localBlob = getLocalPlayerBlob();
	 if (localBlob !is null)
	 {
		 if (!myPlayerGotToTheEnd && (localBlob.getPosition() - endPoint).getLength() < 32.0f)
		 {															 
			myPlayerGotToTheEnd = true;
			Sound::Play("/VehicleCapture");
		 }
	 }

There might be a problem with virtual classes and such. But I purposfully avoid using AS specific things like traits.

 

The file size of these translations won't be small too, because I imagine all the global vars and functions need to be in one common header attached to every single translated script, however it won't be anywhere near a couple gigs.
