Thank you; that's what I was suspecting.  In that
case, I'll see if I can use the existing Java
scripting support for the Crystal Space 3D libraries.

Thank you; in that case, I should probably learn
Haskell for my next project.  Alternatively, if
Sebastian Sylvan (or anybody else) completes the
Haskell scripting support for Crystal Space 3D before
I start actually using it, then maybe I'll learn
Haskell much sooner.

If only there were Haskell scripting support for
Crystal Space 3D, Haskell would probably be the better
choice overall to write the majority of the project.

Many thanks,

Benjamin L. Russell
