Lua could be the new Python if it had a good installation and support library story. I don't think it even needs the large number of support libraries, just more than what it has today. Of course, Lua's syntax is STILL quirky (~= instead of !=, really? Are you kidding me? :-)
Oh, I took the flame bait too :-)

Every time I compile a new Lua I add the support for '!=', my old 'C' fingers have a hard time to making the change :-( I would love to see '!=' and '~=' get supported as a default feature of the language. Adding '!=' does not add very much code and it sure does make it easier :-)

Back to lurking, Thanks
