This book is a "mini" language reference on the Lua programming language. Lua is one of the most popular embedded programming languages, and it is widely used as a scripting language in many applications. We go through all salient features of Lua, as a standalone programming language in this book.
Although the book is written as a reference, you can read it more or less from beginning to end and you should be able to get the overall picture of the Lua language (but not necessarily all the gory details) if you are familiar with some basic syntax of Lua.
The book covers
- Lua standalone interpreter.
- Lua program execution. Modules.
- Types, literals, variables.
- Expressions, functions, statements.
- Tables, arrays.
- Metatables, metamethods.
- Lua standard libraries.
