Prepurchase Question: Esenthal Script = What is it?
Hi,

I am targeting Android and Windows and was considering a purchase.

I was wondering about the Esenthal Script in the code editor though. How is it compiled, is it preprocessed into C++ source before hitting the platform compiler. Is it run-time processed in anyway (JIT, interpreted, byte-code etc.)?

Also is there a performance hit when using Esenthal Script over straight C++?

I realise I can use Eclipse + C++ + EE for Android but I am no big fan of Eclipse, hence my questions about Esenthal Script.

Cheers,


Veggie

Hello,

The Code Editor codes are converted into cpp files, which are then compiled by target compilers (VS for Windows, Xcode for Mac/iOS, Android NDK/SDK for Android).

There's no performance penalty for using Code Editor.

Ah, that's great. I'm just looking over the other features today and it's looking like an obvious "must buy!" purchase.

BTW thank you for your prompt reply Esenthel, having a friendly SDK dev available occasionally on the forum is a big plus for me too!
