Lua is no stand-alone language, but a scripting language. It is used to
extend programs written in a full programming language, thus it needs to be
initialized and called from another language, like C or C++. A binding to
another language means, that you have a way to call Lua. Not all languages
provide means to access Lua, since Lua itself is written in C.

Included in Lua is an interpreter, which provides a minimal environment to
execute scripts, so you don't have to create a program of your own if you
just want to try Lua.
