A new version of metalua is available, with too many fixes to list them all. More importantly, it starts to have usable doc and samples; among them:

- a practical introduction to Metalua:

- a user manual:

- and a series of programming samples:

Among these samples, the "kitchen sink" ( )
implements most of the syntax extensions I've seen requested on the mailing list. As you would expected, the result doesn't exactly improve readbility... anyway, it demonstrates a couple of standard techniques, it's easy to cut-n-paste the bits which interest you, and it probably offers a starting point for many hacks you could feel like playing with.

The compiler itself is available here:, and on luaforge.
