    SMC - The State Machine Compiler v. 4.3.0


    Requires: Java 1.4.1 SE (Standard Edition) or better.
    Download: http://sourceforge.net/projects/smc
    Home Page: http://smc.sourceforge.net

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

    + Added -reflect option for Java, C#, VB.Net and Tcl code
    generation. When used, allows applications to query a state
    about its supported transitions. Returns a list of transition
    names. This feature is useful to GUI developers who want to
    enable/disable features based on the current state. See
    Programmer's Manual section 11: On Reflection for more
    information.

    + Updated LICENSE.txt with a missing final paragraph which allows
    MPL 1.1 covered code to work with the GNU GPL.

    + Added a Maven plug-in and an ant task to a new tools directory.
    Added Eiten Suez's SMC tutorial (in PDF) to a new docs
    directory.

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

    + (GraphViz) DOT file generation did not properly escape
    double quotes appearing in transition guards. This has been
    corrected.

    + A note: the SMC FAQ incorrectly stated that C/C++ generated
    code is thread safe. This is wrong. C/C++ generated is
    certainly *not* thread safe. Multi-threaded C/C++ applications
    are required to synchronize access to the FSM to allow for
    correct performance.

    + (Java) The generated getState() method is now public.

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

    SMC takes a state machine description (stored in a .sm file) and
    generates State pattern classes in a target language (C, C++, C#,
    Java, Perl, Python, Ruby, Tcl and VB.Net are currently
    supported). SMC is a console-based app written in Java which
    means SMC can run anywhere Java (1.4.1 or better) can run.
    The download package includes a document and example directory
    showing how SMC can used with C, C++, C#, Java, Perl, Python,
    Ruby, Tcl (requires [incr Tcl] package) and VB.Net. 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?
