Hi Robert,

I've been thinking about the marriage of Erlang<->Lua for a while, but haven't yet come up with the need for it... Still learning Erlang though (by implementing a xmpp server ;c).

I did make a binding from Pike to Lua a few years ago (never released, but I should have the code somewhere should anyone be interested).

If nothing else, I'd be interested in helping out with the effort.

Best regards,

Subject: Calling into Lua from Erlang


I will need to call Lua scripts from within Erlang soon. I was
wondering if anyone has already looked into a slightly closer binding
than calling an external program to run the Lua script and marshalling
via stdin/out?

I am currently undecided whether to make the Lua API available to be
invoked from Erlang (via a linked-in driver) or if it might be more
useful to write a Lua library that allows a Lua script to function as
an Erlang node (similar to the Erlang Jinterface lib for Java).

I would gratefully receive opinions and wisdom on this kind of stuff?
