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 ( www.pcre.org
) to lua ..
can anyone give any suggestions on where i can start learning the lua C
