RE: Tcc - Lua

I'm also a big fan of tcc and even use it sometimes productively at work for small tasks - I'm not aware of an alternative if you need a working portable compiler on a memory stick.
If your main concern is execution speed, did you already have a look at luaJIT? In the one case I tried it, it gave me a performance boost of a factor 7. Then the difference to tcc executables (which are not very optimized machine code) is not that large any more, and to my mind the advantage of staying within one language (think about debugging!) in most cases clearly outweighs the gain in speed.
