Glad to see it being used. A brief update on Yueliang. I coded
Yueliang as a no-brainer port of the C code, currently the front
end only, and I've recently restarted work on it. I've been adding
comments liberally for educational purposes and rewriting the
5.0.2 Lua llex, then got a bit sidetracked optimizing a simplified
version of the lexer down to 3346 bytes, compiled and stripped.
Many thanks to Fabien, he has done all the work updating the code
to 5.1. I've been putting off updating to 5.1 for too long. I'll
check out Metalua, then update my svn files and make a release for
My short-term goal is to write an incremental parser for Lua
syntax checking on SciTE, so I can get immediate squiggly-line
