Lua programming language
« on: July 17, 2007, 06:36:53 PM »
The Lua Programming language "is a powerful, fast, light-weight, embeddable scripting language. Lua combines simple procedural syntax with powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and extensible semantics. Lua is dynamically typed, runs by interpreting bytecode for a register-based virtual machine, and has automatic memory management with incremental garbage collection, making it ideal for configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping."

...and I think zaine maybe is suggesting we have another section in the developer's corner (not associated with the programming school) to discuss specific languages?
