I have re-worked a bit the evas binding. The archive contains:
* a diff of configure.ac
* a dif of the toplevel Makefile.am
* the subdir evas/ with the .h, .cc, the test app and Makefile.am
1) in the configure.ac, i've only tested if evas and ecore are installed.
I've not add some --disable-evas. Should I add it ?
2) the headers are all commented, but my english is ugly. Maybe someone
should read to fix it :)
3) I don't know what licence to use. What should I use ?
4) there are some functions that does not work correctly :
I don't really know why.
5) all the utf8 stuff is not supported, simply because I have no idea on
how to manage it
I have tested the binding and even made a widget for one of the toolkit,
and it seems to work great. Btw, that library is quite good.
I would also be glad if someone take a bit of time to try this code
