I've been working on Windows-side bindings. C# is "ready" (meaning that
some of the functions are working and for now rest of them will not be
done). Mr. Napoli replicated my work and there are working VB-bindings
also. Both results will be put into Gnokii CVS soon.
Previously I had a couple of my own applications using Perl-bindings,
but my code is unusable as there are no working Perl-libraries anymore.
There used to be, but they are withdrawn by author (Mr. Agouros). Last
time I tried his code, it did not compile (I think it was with Gnokii
0.6.25 and Perl 5.8.8). The failure was somehow strange and it could not
be fixed quickly.
My resolution for 2009 will be:
As soon as initial version of Windows bindings is released, I'll start
working on Perl-bindings and aim to get them released in the CPAN as
GSM::Gnokii (or similar).
Couple of years ago somebody asked about Python bindings and there was a
short discussion, but it did not yield to anything. The only fruit of
that was discovery of SWIG (http://www.swig.org/), which might be used
for wrapping libgnokii. I'm not sure if it is possible, but certainly it
is worth the try. It would result immediate bindings for number of
scripting languages. Does anybody here have any experience about SWIG?
About Ruby-bindings I've not seen or registered any conversations about.
