There's also SWIG (, which can generate a Lua
interface to C/C++ code.  It does require the use of interface files,
however it has some functionality to autogenerate the exported
interfaces given the contents of a header file.  It also supports
virtual methods, STL strings, and the ability to generate bindings to
languages other than Lua, if you might want or need that.
