Hey this sounds awesome. I just got myself a Prism a couple of days ago and
have been meaning to try something like this (course, I got Sudden Strike at
the same time, so free time seems a bit limited ;).

Do you have what you've done so far available for download anywhere? I'd
love to give it a try.

Subject: Lua running on PalmOS!

> I hacked a version of Lua to run on PalmOS.
