No kidding. It's like asking, "what the best vehicle?" The question
is meaningless by itself. It needs to be, "what is the best vehicle
for purpose X?"
Lua beats Perl up and down the block when you need an *embedded*
scripting language, one that is easy to extend, one that is time
*and* space efficient, one that is particularly good at data
description and easy to read/learn by novice programmers. Perl is
none of these things.
