as3tohaxe

UPDATE: Caue Waneck told me that exist newer version, which you can find here: https://code.google.com/p/caffeine-hx/source/browse/trunk#trunk%2Fprojects%2Fas3hx

AS3 to Haxe code conversion tool

This is port of as3tohaxe to Haxe 3

Original code can be found here: https://code.google.com/p/haxe/source/browse/#svn%2Fother%2Fas3hx

=========== Config file

as3hx looks for, or creates, a config file in your home directory called ".as3hx_config.xml". You can also create one in the directory you are running as3hx from, which will override the home file.

  • indentChars: (String=\t)
    • The characters used to indent each line
  • newlineChars: (String=\n)
    • The characters used to terminate each line
  • bracesOnNewline: (Bool=true)
    • If set, opening braces will be put on a new line
  • uintToInt: (Bool=false)
    • If set, all uint in flash will be translated to Int
  • vectorToArray: (Bool=false)
    • If set, all Vectors will be changed to Arrays
  • guessCasts: (Bool=true)
    • Cast guessing should likely be on, as it will change any MyClass(obj) to a cast(obj, MyClass) call.
  • functionToDynamic: (Bool=false)
    • If set, Function will be translated to Dynamic
  • getterMethods: (String=get%I)
    • Can be set to change the names of getters. %I : field name with first letter capitalized %i : field name unchanged (ex. get_%i)
  • setterMethods: (String=set%I)
    • Can be set to change the names of setters
  • getterSetterStyle: (String="haxe")
    • "haxe": a field will be created with haxe style setters and getters. (var m(getM,setM))
    • "flash": only native getters and setters will be created using @:getter and @:setter
    • "combined": both will be generated

For the "combined" getterSetterStyle, code output will look similar to:

#if flash

    @:getter(target) function get_target() : {} {
        return proxy;
    }
    
#else

    override function get_target() : Dynamic {
        return proxy;
    }
    
#end

================= Current failures:

================================ E4X:

No E4X is done as of yet. This will fail. Solution: Comment out the function in the source code, and re-run.

for each ( var v:XML in classInfo..*.(
      name() == "variable"
      || ( 
            name() == "accessor"
            // Issue #116 - Make sure accessors are readable
            && attribute( "access" ).charAt( 0 ) == "r" )
         ) 
)

================================ For Initializations:

The output of

if(true) {
	for(var i:uint = 0; i < 7; i++)
		val += "0";				
} else {
	for(i = 0; i < 8; i++)
		val += "0";
}

is

if(true) {
	var i : UInt = 0;
	while(i < 7) {
			val += "0";
			i++;
	}
} else {
	i = 0;
	while(i < 8) {
			val += "0";
			i++;
	}
}

As you can see, the scope of "i" in flash is not the same as in haxe, so the "else" section will produce Unknown identifier : i. The solution is to move the "var i : UInt = 0;" outside of the blocks in the generated code.

This can not be avoided by always creating the i variable, as the code

for(var i:uint = 0; i < 7; i++)
	val += "0";				
for(i = 0; i < 8; i++)
	val += "0";

would then produce a double initialization of i, also causing a compiler error.

var i : UInt = 0;
while(i < 7) {
	val += "0";
	i++;
}
var i = 0;
while(i < 8)
{
	val += "0";
	i++;
}
