RE: Does Luac work ?

Hi,

They are a little different, luac compiles lua code to lua bytecode ...

It is not really faster when a program runs, it just allows you to compile scripts into binary files that murgaLua could load ... With this you would loose the source, so I rather keep things running from scripts. What's more there are a couple of issues around implementing it for murgaLua, so its something that I really have no motivation at all to do.

LuaJIT is something I probably WILL be adding, this doesn't change the behavior of murgaLua, but would increase the performance dramatically under some circumstances. So it's on the todo list, but it is low priority (but easy to check out).

The issue with LuaJit is that it is x86 only at the moment, which means that only Windows/Intel-Linux/Intel-Mac would work ... This may not be such a bad thing as these are the only platforms I support right now anyway. There are a few other caveats, and I think my time is better spent looking at other things right now, so we'll see ...

Cheers
JohnM
