No roadmap, published or otherwise. Do you have any special requests??
A million thanks for sheparding Lua into the fantastic tool it is today.
If you're soliciting for 5.2 suggestions, would you consider
ada/erlang style arbitrary base constants? I've brought this up before
with no one else being interested. I'd contribute patches if there is
To recap, erlang (and I've heard Ada) support a style of integer
constants which precedes the constant with a number base (1-36) so
that things like:
2#1001 gets converted into 9 and
16#ff gets converted to 255
1#111 gets converted to 3 (okay, base one isn't that useful)
This would make some of my code much easier to read.
Just a suggestion.
