Hi all,

This is the first public announcement of LuaDec. From its webpage: "LuaDec is 
a decompiler for the Lua language. It takes compiled Lua bytecodes and 
attempts to produce equivalent Lua source code on standard output. It targets 
Lua 5.0.2."

At this point, it is far from being a fail-proof decompiler. There are known 
situations where it can get confused, but at this point the most common 
constructs are handled (all demos from the Lua distribution are correctly 
decompiled, for example), so it could be a useful tool to aid in retrieving 
lost sources. Download links and more information can be found here:
