What is it

Leonie is a bytecode interpreter for a HyperTalk-like programming language named Hammer. It is written in plain C for portability and control.

How to build

There is currently only an Xcode project for MacOS X test app in the macosx subfolder, however that code should be easily portable to command-line Unix with a few changes.

Better test application

If you want to play around with Leonie in the context of actual bytecode, a good idea would be to check out the Forge and ForgeDebugger projects, which include a command line tool that compiles Hammer source code into Leonie bytecode and runs it.
