Lua is a programming language originally designed for extending
applications, but also frequently used as a general-purpose,
stand-alone language.
Lua combines simple procedural syntax (similar to Pascal) with
powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and
extensible semantics. Lua is dynamically typed, interpreted from
bytecodes, and has automatic memory management, making it ideal for
configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping. Lua is implemented
as a small library of C functions, written in ANSI C, and the
implementation goals are simplicity, efficiency, portability, and low
embedding cost.
