No and no.
So far, I did only wrappers around some Win32 functions, and a small
library (DLL), all by hand, the way it is done in lualib.
I didn't had time to take a look at tolua and frankly, I am a bit wary at
using code generators... More a prejudice than anything else, mind you.
I like the flexibility and precision of manual binding, I can make the
functions behave the way I want, fine grain for parameter checking,
returning multiple values, etc. Now, perhaps tolua is as flexible, I just
don't know it.
I suppose if I had to create wrapper around large libraries, I would use
it, if I have a strong deadline or if manual binding is really too
repetitive or boring...
> * Do you use tolua for C or C++?
Currently, I mostly use Lua in C. Not a lot of code yet.

Can't really answer, but having to create specific files put me off a
little, unless it has weak binding to the application. Using special
comments is the way I like.
