LPeg is an excellent library, Roberto. It is a perfect fit for Lua, a
powerful and elegant alternative to string-based patterns. I'm really
impressed with the scope of its applications and how naturally it
extends Lua. Lua now has the best of both worlds: easy to use pattern
matching routines in the string library, and a parsing expression
grammar for the deeper cases.
I had to #ifdef out the utf8 function on a certain operating system
(guess which one) because MSVCRT.DLL doesn't support wctype!
