SPL Programming Language

SPL is an embeddable programming language with a wide range of features. This package contains the core functionality for spl. If you need the adapters for a database consider installing one of spl-postgres, spl-mysql or spl-sqlite.

Features include but are not limited to: * Completely stateful. It is at any point possible to interrupt a running SPL script, dump its entire state to disk and resume later on. * Feature-Rich. SPL has native support for hashes and arrays, regular expressions, object oriented programming, etc. * Dynamic. SPL is a full dynamic language - with all the advantages and disadvantages. * C-Style Syntax. SPL has a c-style syntax (as well as many other languages such as Java, JavaScript, PHP, S-Lang, etc). So it is easier to get started. * Advanced String Lexing. SPL allows the programmer to simply embed variables and complex expressions in string and template files. E.g. this is very important for rapid development of web applications. * Well-Structured Backend. The SPL runtime is not just one big blackbox. Instead there is a clear and visible seperation of compiler, assembler, optimizer, virtual machine, etc. This makes it possible to easily adapt the library for your special needs when embedding it in your applications.

Package version:1.0~pre6-2


SPL C-API Documentation

SPL has a pretty simple C interface which allows easy embedding of the SPL
virtual machine and the SPL compiler in other applications and extending
SPL using functions and modules written in C.

A very complete example program (using almost the entire API) is "splrun.c". It
is the tool which is usually used to run SPL programms on the command line.

SPL Language Reference Manual

The SPL sources include many example programs. E.g.:


SPL scripts can be executed with "splrun <spl-script-filename>". WebSPL scripts
(*.webspl) can be executed using "webspl.cgi" or "webspld" (see README file or
the 1st chapter in the big SPL manual).
