Post: JNLua (Java Native Lua)

Any chance of including this in murgalua? I'm not a big fan of java, but you have to admit it's an industry standard and there are cross-platform compiled libraries available for just about anythin...

Post: concatenate nil

Most of you know that lua throws a conniption when you try to concatenate a nil value. Often, it's not a big deal to check for a nil value first. But I've got bitten in the rear end more than once w...

I looked at metatables and couldn't get them to do anything right. I did read a lot about how great and wonderful and powerful and cool metatables are. I must be a moron as I couldn't get a single e...

I have something like this in a loop i=string.find(string,lookfor,icur,true) In some cases, it seems that [i]i[/i] is being set to 1 when a match is found at the end of the string, which caused...

Alien Rocks! Just tried a basic example and it worked and it's simple enough that even I can understand it.

I've got programs that do simple inserts and updates on a single table. It all works fine if only one program is running at a time. I get the "database is locked" on the nrows iterator over a select...

Post: RE: sqlite database is locked

db:busy_timeout might do the trick. It looks like the default value is zero, meaning it doesn't wait at all if there is a busy condition. I haven't been able to try it yet.

  Thread: XPDF wrapper
Post: RE: XPDF wrapper

I'm missing something here. This script executes an xpdf command. I downloaded xpdf software for windows and there is no xpdf.exe. There are several other executables like pdftotext.exe.

Is there a way to run a system command and receive the standard output in a variable? os.execute returns only a status code.

I wasn't suggesting making wxLua part of murgaLua. Just that wxLua could be used with murgaLua for those who require features that may not be in FLTK or those who just prefer wx. Sorry if I wasn't c...

Does anyone know how to prompt a user for input from a console application? Ideally, it would be able to mask the input for a password type field.
