    SMC - The State Machine Compiler v. 2.1.0


    Requires: Java 1.2 SE (Standard Edition) or better.
    Download: http://sourceforge.net/projects/smc
    Home Page: http://smc.sourceforge.net


    =================================================================
    What's New?
    =================================================================

    + Added "-table" command line option. SMC generates an HTML table
    for the .sm file. The table header is:

    State Entry Transition
    Entry Exit (One subheader for each)

    Each cell contains each guard, end state and action for the
    state and transition. Remember: each state/transition pair
    may have multiple guards and each guard may have a different
    end state and actions.

    The generated HTML table is rudimentary since my HTML skills
    are rudimentary. This feature is alpha but I hope to receive
    some pointers in how I can improve the table's implementation.

    =================================================================
    Bug fixes
    =================================================================

    + I have also changed the source file download to include the bin
    directory as well. Now if you download the source, you also
    have the Smc.jar necessary to build the product.

    + The Java FSMContext class no longer automatically allocates the
    state stack object. The state stack is only needed if your FSM
    uses the push/pop transitions. The state stack is now allocated
    when it is needed. In the C++ and Tcl version, the state stack
    is implemented differently and this issue does not arise.

    + I have converted all files from the DOS file format to Unix.
    This caused some problems especially for gmake 3.76.1 on Sun
    Solaris 8.

    + Removed "using namespace std" from statemap.h. Placing
    "using namespace ..." in a header file is bad C++. I also use
    the new <cstdio>, etc. standard header files whereever
    possible instead of the older <stdio.h>.

    =================================================================
    What is SMC?
    =================================================================

    SMC takes a state machine description (stored in a .sm file) and
    generates State pattern classes in a target language (C++, Java
    and Tcl are currently supported). SMC is a console-based app
    written in Java which means SMC can run anywhere Java (1.2 or
    better) can run. The download package includes an example
    directory showing how SMC can used with C++, Java and Tcl
    (requires [incr Tcl] package). The examples range from trivial to
    GUI apps.


    =================================================================
    How can I learn more?
    =================================================================

    At http://smc.sourceforge.net. You can access the SMC
    Programmer's Manual there as well. While you're there, check out
    the SMC demo applet at http://smc.sourceforge.net/SmcDemo.htm.


    =================================================================
    Where can I get it?
    =================================================================

    SMC and the Programmer's Manual can be downloaded from
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/smc. You can also use this
    website to:

    + Ask questions (via the Public Forum's Help discussion)
    + Submit a bug.
    + Join a mailing list.
    + Access SMC documentation.
    + Access SMC's source code in the CVS repository.
