  • Just our of curiosity and never having heard of Lua [lua.org] before I checked it out on the scriptometer [sourceforge.net], mentioned [perl.org] by Gnat [perl.org] on use.perl.

    It actually does quite well, with an overall score of 90 compared to Perl's 149

      Yes, I also noticed this on the scriptometer. And one has to keep in mind that Lua is not even meant as a standalone language. It is intended to be fleshed out with customly defined C functions to provide additional functionality.

      This comparison [iolanguage.com] made me stick to Lua. I was on the edge of dropping Inline::Lua again when things didn't work at all in the beginning. But then I saw that Lua appears to be quite performant for some tasks and so I gave it another try, luckily so.
