That's me, guilty as charged. I'm working like mad on a consulting
project so I can go on an extended holiday to New Zealand with
my family, so don't hold your breath for "clean source" an the next
few weeks.

Email me off-list and I'll shoot the whole source as a ZIP over to you.

Email sent!  Thanks for this, Lua rocks, I have always wanted to see it running on a small(ish) micro!

One of the chapters is all about the port. I can tell you that the
main problem was getting a run-time library that works reasonably
well and is not too bloated. Again, that's in the archive too.

Cool thanks a lot! Hopefully Ill have it up and running on an ARM board in no time.

Cheers, Ralph

Thanks again,
