As I don't have the grasp that some on the group do, I'd be hesitant to
provide any of my scripts as honestly I've learned alot from the people
here. The thing I did find lacking was information at the actual
integration level within (some) languages. I'd be happy to write
something up on how to integrate Lua into FreePascal and Delphi
applications from an existing or new creation point of view. Would
that be something that you would be interested in?
