Binary package “valac-0.14” in ubuntu quantal
C# like language for the GObject system
Vala is a new programming language that aims to bring modern programming
language features to GNOME developers without imposing any additional
runtime requirements and without using a different ABI compared to
applications and libraries written in C.
valac, the Vala compiler, is a self-hosting compiler that translates
Vala source code into C source and header files. It uses the GObject
type system to create classes and interfaces declared in the Vala
source code. This package also contains the vala-gen-introspect and
vapigen binaries that will automatically generate Vala bindings.
