./lang/vala, Compiler for the GObject type system

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.48.7, Package name: vala-0.48.7, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Vala is a programming language that aims to bring modern programming
language features to GNOME developers without imposing any additional
runtime requirements and without using a different ABI compared to
applications and libraries written in C.

valac, the Vala compiler, is a self-hosting compiler that translates
Vala source code into C source and header files. It uses the GObject
type system to create classes and interfaces declared in the Vala source

Required to run:
[graphics/graphviz] [devel/glib2] [devel/libltdl]

Required to build:
[textproc/libxslt] [pkgtools/cwrappers]
