To cut this discussion short, use the 'luac' command to generate precompiled Lua code.

Then run it through the 'bin2c' tool, either from Lua etc/ or from here.

Try, fiddle, improvise, and if you ask for help, be specific.

Oh, btw: it won't generate C code for you. It gives you a binary chunk of Lua code that can be embedded in a C program. Is that what you want?

Could you forward lua2c file,if you have one with you.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Rob Kendrick,

Thanks for your suggestions..

Is the below example is correct to generate the *.c file from *.lua

Where lua - interpreter
Lua2c.lua -utility to convert to *.c file.
ftp.lua  - file to convert to ftp.c file.

Lua lua2c.lua ftp.lua

I don't know - it depends on your lua2c implementation.  Try it and
examine its output.
