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 official manual covering the Lua language and C API,
examples, etc.
