Simple, extensible, embeddable programming language
Lua is a powerful, light-weight programming language designed for extending
applications. The language engine is accessible as a library, having a C
API which allows the application to exchange data with Lua programs and also
to extend Lua with C functions. Lua is also used as a general-purpose,
stand-alone language through the simple command line interpreter provided.
This package contains the Lua command line interpreter and bytecode compiler.
Install it if you are developing or using Lua scripts.
