That's ok, I'm learning new things and techniques. C++ scripting is only intermediate step for me, at the end I would like to get
new (programming + natural) language in place - some ideas can be found here:

This is so typical - you're considering youself as support personnel for all compilers and platforms, meanwhile I think you should take different perspective -?
you're developing master codeline, and visual c++ is a clue to your script. :-) ?I would propose to make special kind of define which identifies CINT scripter
and allow developers to patch existing environments to hide incompatibilities. For example:
however - this is not always doable - hit already against incompatibilities with call conventions.
Anyway - are you willing to assist / help me if I'll take a swim into cint source code ?
(I'll analyze it for suitability for further development, but after that I don't see any problem).
It would be also good if you could give me good contacts to chat directly - skype id's / etc...
We could use this forum as well, but for moderated information.
Have a nice day!

Subject: Re: [CINT] CInt and function pointers...
Thank you very much for your remark.?
I needed such tool as a user and happened to be the one who actually create it.
I used to support CINT and did a lot of enhancements.
At this moment, I am an active user of CINT and ROOT, however not active for support and enhancement.? Supporting multiple applications + multiple platforms and continuing compiler version up turned out to be too much, together with my other work.? I am still using old Visual C++6.0/7.2 on Windows. gl and Win32API are the most tricky libraries among all.
Instead, I am using ROOT as multiplatform graphics, database and house keeping platform. People in CERN and Fermi-Lab are committed to support ROOT/CINT, at least, as long as they operate LHC experiements at CERN which is beyond 2030, I guess.? ROOT looks quite heavy at the beginning, but it is really nice once you learn.
