I wrote a Lua language binding for Dazuko (background: Dazuko can
monitor and intercept file system operations, currently runs on
several UNIX systems and typically gets used for antivirus software
and activity loggers; see for more

To learn how to build a language binding I used the online doc as well
as had a look at the math lib to see how building a plugin works
(exporting routines from C to Lua, getting parameters from the stack,
checking and evaluating them, returning results to the caller, the
general layout of a plugin).

My question is now: can I use a BSD style license for the Dazuko
language binding after grasping concepts from a Lua lib?  I guess I
can, since your license is quite open and friendly.  But I better ask
to be sure.

You can get the code from -> Downloads -> get
the dazuko-2.1.0-birthday.tar.gz package.  See the example_lua
directory and the README in it.

And of course I would be happy to receive feedback on where I did miss
something or made a mistake in the plugin.  There are still hacks
which might need to get improved (better encapsulating internals,
using a user data container, attaching to the GC, adding consistency
checks and safety belts, expanding and improving the Makefile, adding
documentation, and the like).
