I like decoda a lot, but the price is prohibitive for me. The last version
was really buggy and would crash when I tried copy/pasting files or when
modifying lua files while the debugger was active. After they updated to the
latest version they seemed to fix all the issues I had, but I just can't
justify the cost.
If you are embedding lua in a visual studio based app I would recommend doing
a search for a copy of autoexp.dat to be able to more easily look at the lua
state while in the debugger. I'd be happy to email my somewhat customized
version of the one I found on this list a while ago to anyone who needs it.
