It's an interesting article (myself being a RISC OS person) to read. It's
worth noting though, that I've happily had programs in Lua be pre-emptivly
multitasked with no trouble at all. Also, my own efforts in allowing
programs written in Lua to call SWIs (RiscLua doesn't come in library form,
so it can't be included in other programs easily) actually create a SWI
instruction to call, rather than using OS_CallASWI. Although OS_CallASWI is
more 'correct', it doesn't tend to be available in earlier versions of RISC
OS (anything before 3.7, IIRC).
It's nice to see these notes; I'll have to see if I can knock a couple up :)
