Greetings to All!

This is not my first time at Lua-l though I'm pretty sure it's my first
post. My initial sign up was last July and I did not joined the group
for much time. I was getting flooded with eMail so I had to put some
order home, elect priorities, get rid of garbage, install a new s-pam
filter and, finally, get back into business. On that time I "heard" a
lot from the posts. ;)

During my short time at Lua-l I figure out that this is a very
talkative list with several gurus, experienced coders/designers,
average persons and last, but not least, newbies like me. I'm quite
confident that I found my place. :)

Though I'm coding for a long time (I should say since a long time ago)
I'm not in this business anymore. Today I'm acting more as a tech
translator (software, manuals, tutorials, tech books, sites, etc.). So,
please, don't expect too much from me. My aims are very short: to code
on a interpreted language (initially on text mode), make some database
management application, possibly using it as a CGI-script (I couldn't
get along with Perl, unfortunately) and maybe develop some GUI apps.
Off course I'm planning to use Lua as a stand-alone language and I will
keep on this track while practical.

As a first question, I'd like to know if there is any GUI IDE suitable
to Lua use that I could get. A GUI debugger is also highly desirable.
And, most important, where to find ALL readable/printable matter on Lua
(I have already Refman, LuaBook [draft] and the introductory "Noções de
Lua 3.1" in Portuguese. I'm not sure if there is already any printed
material but I'd appreciate to know if any. I use to learn faster from
paper... Thanks in advance for any help. :)

Kind regards,
