	i am new to lua. i just found it two days ago and
compared it with other scripting languages like
cslang, simkin and python. and finally decided to use
it in my real-time high speed virtual experimentation
tool (in C++ and fltk ) because of it's speed.i also
joined this mailing list just yesterday.
  and this morning i found that u have written such a
good tool for converting lua code to C. i think this
will help me a lot, atleast it will show me a way, for
my interface to lua from C++. i think tools like lua2c
and jlua will help lua's proliferation.  thumbs up for
writing a very good tool.
bye  :-)
