Probably. Quite recently, a student of mine posted a message asking
for "complete Lua programs that do a reasonable amount of memory
Unfortunatelly, nobody replied :(
It seems that your mesh simplifier fits the bill :)
Oh, I don't remember seeing that post. Thanks for letting
me know! The scripts in question are pretty hideously woven-in
with a set of commercial classes and APIs though, so very far
from standalone for any practical testing.
If I was going to rewrite it again from scratch I'd very likely
make it standalone and freely-licensed, but also might just bite
the bullet and use C/C++! Really it was an experiment in whether
it would be practical to implement key number-crunching parts of
the toolchain itself in Lua.
