Lua :: The Programming Language

Lua is a powerful, fast, lightweight, 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.

Why choose Lua?

There are many reasons why one should use, here are some from the Lua website. You should use it because Lua:-
  • is a proven, robust language
  • is fast
  • is portable
  • is embeddable
  • is powerful (but simple)
  • is small
  • is free
