- Subject: Stripping down the Lua interpreter
- From: David Given <dg@...>

Periodically we have discussions about how best to reduce the size of
the Lua interpreter. There seem to be a number of techniques for doing
this --- removing the compiler, the libraries, the list of opcodes, etc.
But I can't find any definitive documentation on what can do done, and
how effective it is.
I am now in a position where I'd like to embed a minimised Lua
interpreter in an application. If I really try hard, what kind of size
am I looking at? Are there any on-line resources that can assist me (I
can't find anything in the wiki)?
