I have benchmarked (for a client application) LUA and SmallC
against using C++.

Both LUA and SmallC (SmallC won by a small margin), provided
neglible overhead against using native C++.

One good reason why, and one that I need, is to convince management
that its a worthy solution to some dynamic code generation problems.

My boss wants me to generate compiled C++ on the fly based on the
user communities mods. We're to build a series of tools to enable
the user community to change the business rules on the fly. I'd like
for these rules to be generated in lua and parsed from our C++ engine.
But I need to convince him that it will be fast enough.
