  1. Since I can use Object reference as parameters in my functions and the object handle is in fact NOT a pointer, is there really any reason of using (or even having) object handles? I just can't find that good reason.   The only difference I see is that I can reseat the object handle with different object and I can also use it as a return parameter of function.   I really don't know, I wanted to wrap my head around the need for object handles - especially the reason why I would want to use them, but since I can pass reference in functions, I can't find any reasonable reason to use them. Is there some safety issue, speed issue or something else? Is there something obvious I don't see?   Give me some ideas. Thanks. Love the angelscript, I just want to understand it better.
  2. Andreas, the compile worked ok with my Copy(const image @&in), the runtime went into an loop when executing it. I didn't debug it as I knew I was probably doing something I shouldn't.   I tried the copyconstructor and it works, but as any other reference input it doesn't accept @ tag which maybe makes the syntax confusing or maybe not... there is something about the object handle syntax I am not 100% comfortable. 
  3. I am trying to do a copy constructor on asOBJ_REF class. Seems the asBEHAVE_CONSTRUCT does not apply to asOBJ_REF classes.   Any ideas?   I settled so far for    RegisterObjectMethod("image", "void Copy(const image &in)", asMETHOD(CByteImage,Copy), asCALL_THISCALL); assert( r >= 0 );   However my image class asBEHAVE_FACTORY is all object  handles, but I seems not to be able to make the Copy accept the object handles as argument.   so I can go    img2.Copy(img);  and it is fine   the  img2.Copy(@img);   would throw compile error.   I tried RegisterObjectMethod("image", "void Copy(const image @&in)", asMETHOD(CByteImage,Copy), asCALL_THISCALL); assert( r >= 0 );   and while it is accepted, the runtime runs into what seems an endless loop (well it does returns after 7 sec which is probably some protection in the angelscript), so I don't think this is how I am supposed to do it.   Any help & ideas?   BTW, speeds are pretty awesome. I use it for image processing (the looping through the pixels is the main toll) and the scripted version vs native code is about 10-12x slower. So if native version would be 35ms,, the scripted version would be for example 450 ms. I think that is pretty amazing.
  4. AngelScript 2.26.3 is out

    Thanks, fantastic work. The asEP_DISALLOW_VALUE_ASSIGN_FOR_REF_TYPE is definitelly going to be set TRUE in my project

    Thanks, I do understand the left hand requirement, I just got surprised by the @ on right side of assignment. Anyway, it is logical.

    The script works like a charm in the development version (plugged it all today). I started from your texture generator demo, creating similar image class, not realizing the library changed a bit from there... but I got my bearings very quickly.   One thing I would like to have more explained is the typing convention with the reference sign @. say you have void function(image @img) {...}   image@ img = @image(200,200);   function(@img);   is this @ on the function(@img) just for convention? Because it works as function(img) as well.   Same with the  image@ img = @image(200,200); omitting the @ from the front of image(200,200) works as well and seems to not do anything different, but is there any difference or it is all for convention?   [attachment=15627:angelscript.jpg]

    I am working on a nodal graphical software Photo-Reactor and after three days of messing with the angelscript, I am 100% positive this will become a great part of the software. I previously contemplated to write my own bytecode interpreter as nothing I found was suitable and I need both 32 and 64 bit version. I am absolutely glad I spent the time looking around, the angelscript is exactly what I was after. Big kudos to Andreas. The angelscript is a beast. What I love the most is that it is c/c++ syntax and it is brilliantly plug-and-play. More about the project: http://www.mediachance.com/reactor/index.html
