[plt-scheme] [ANN] MzXPCOM

as an exercise in PLT Scheme embedding and Mozilla XPCOM programming I
have hacked together something similar to MzCOM but for the Mozilla
platform instead of Windows COM.

At the moment the code just implements a simple string to string
evaluation interface, error handling and Scheme background thread
polling. If I find the time, I plan to expand it in the future to
provide full interoperability between Scheme code and XPCOM

You can find the current code at


A precompiled test application that should work with XULRunner 1.9 on
ix86 Linux can be found at


After downloading, use a command like `xulrunner --install-app
mzcom-example.xpi /tmp` to set it up in a temporary directory.


When C++ is your hammer, every problem looks like your thumb.
