It would be really nice to have it in Debian, but I wonder if it would
have to go to contrib. Even though it can be exported to C++, the
source code (as in "the preferred format for modification") will still
be purepasic, wouldn't it?
Does the generated C++ code depend on some non-free libraries?
Actually I just checked this out after seeing the previous mail in this thread,
and it seems that lost labyrinth now is 100% free software in lostlaby's svn
there now is a module called elice, which is a Free purebasic -> c++ compiler:
It's currently geared to compiling lostlaby, so I'm thinking about just
bundling it with the lostlaby purebasic sources and building a Fedora package
that way, either way this is definitely good news!
I've just compiled lostlaby with this using 100% free software from .pb files
to an 64 bit elf binary.
