About a year or so ago there was some talk on this list of porting Lua v5 to Plan 9. Does anybody know if anything happened?

(I can't get to the Plan 9 server at Bell labs at the moment to see if there's anything there..)



Just for completeness I am replying to my own question!

Lua 5.0.2 was ported to Plan9 last year. It is in the contrib section at the Plan9 site..


The last time I used Lua on Plan 9 I just compiled it up in the posix
environment (APE, pcc(1) ) and it all just worked. That was 5.0.2.

I would love to see some special Plan 9 libraries though, to have
access to the acme(4) interface and the fabulously sane thread(2)
system.  Something for the long winter months I think.


Yes. When I asked the question I was hoping for a "native" Plan9 Lua. Building file servers in Lua seems like a good idea to me...
