Luiz Henrique de Figueiredo a écrit :
   Actually does anybody have rights to put a copy of the html in their
projects ? That is,  if I have a project that proudly uses lua as scripting
language do I have to ask for rights to put a copy of the html manual?

Yes, the Lua license explicitly says so: the "Software" means "this
software and associated documentation files". So you can distribute
the reference manual freely.

But you cannot distribute PiL. The web site says so:
	"This online book is for personal use only. It cannot be copied to
	other web sites or further distributed in any form."

Thanks for the clarification.
I knew I would open a can of worms... :-)
I suppose MAXi's author didn't knew this limitation, so I though I should point this out. I suppose Lua manual can be distributed in any form: HTML, CHM, PDF, XML, plain text, hey, why not in Lua source form! :-)
