Lua is a powerful light-weight programming language designed for extending
applications. Lua is also frequently used as a general-purpose, stand-alone
language. Lua is free software. Lua combines simple procedural syntax with
with powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and
extensible semantics. Lua is dynamically typed, interpreted from bytecodes,
and has automatic memory management with garbage collection, making it
ideal for configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping.
