The closest I've found are the papers ( http://www.lua.org/docs.html ), the
No-Frills Introduction to the Lua 5.1 VM Instructions (
and the implementation of Lua in Lua ( http://luaforge.net/projects/yueliang/
)--the latter of which has more documented source code and can be used to
understand the corresponding C source. But I agree--I've also found the source
comments terse and once tried to begin to address it through a section on the
wiki ( http://lua-users.org/wiki/LuaSource ).
