I'm new to Lua, and i like the langauge a lot..
it's clean, simple & elegant , and very flexible to boot :)

but i'm wondering why lua's string handling functions use a strange pseudo-regex syntax as
opposed to the well-known syntax that's used by everyone else?

on that note, i'm considering writing a wrapper for pcre ( ) to lua ..

can anyone give any suggestions on where i can start learning the lua C api ?
