rep-orbit is a port of Owen Taylor's excellent Perl bindings for ORBit -- CORBA-ORBit -- to the librep Lisp system (currently synchronized with CORBA-ORBit 0.3.0).

It allows CORBA clients and servants to be written in rep's Lisp dialogue, the language mapping is still incomplete, but allows useful work to be done.

The README file can be found here.

Since the port is still somewhat unstable, no version has been formally released yet; nightly CVS snapshots can be downloaded from:

Alternatively you may use anonymous CVS:

    cvs login
    cvs co rep-orbit

When prompted for a password for anonymous, simply press the Enter key. Updates from within the module's directory do not need the -d parameter. You can also browse the CVS tree.

It requires recent versions of librep (0.11+) and ORBit (0.5.0+)
