hi Jason,

I think it might not be lua interpreter's problem, but up to the
platform and C compiler.

If no lua library is loaded, lua interpreter only use 920KB mem on my machine.
If io is loaded, the number changed to 940KB -- only 20KB more

but the simplest helloword program written in C will take 876KB.

If you are using some embeded system, maybe you can just have a try.
And please kindly post your result if possible :-)

I build a Lua5.1 interpreter in Linux, without any library. From the
It show that the Lua interpreter use about 1M RSS memory. Is this the
minimum memory usage of Lua?
Is there anyway to reduce it?
