I don't know about running Lua with only 30K of RAM, but for a small
Lua engine try min.c and noparser.c in the etc directory in the
source distribution. These files implement the ideas described in (updated for Lua 5.1). Under Linux,
I get a 40K Lua engine by removing all libraries and the parser modules.
