>I'm currently searching an assembler for Lua :

This has been in my wish list for a long time, but the problem is that the VM
changes from version to version (it will probably change from 4.0 to 4.1).

>I would assemble directly Lua VM code, is it possible ?
>Anyone have this tools ?

Despite the problem above, it should be possible to write an assembler in Lua
that is table driven or at least easily changeable when the VM changes.
However, programs in VM would not live very long, if we keep changing the VM.

We are not committed to freezing the VM -- we use the VM as a means to attain
our design goals, especially simplicity and speed.

I'm sorry this message was a bit negative. I certainly don't want to discourage
you or anyone else.
