Actually got a LuaForge release and an Icon!
http://penlight.luaforge.net/penlight.html For the User Guide
http://penlight.luaforge.net/index.html For the module Docs
And the download:
There is a reasonably detailed example (luash.lua, just over 600
lines) showing PL in action; see the examples and the tests
To anticipate a question, yes there is a lot of overlap with stdlib.
I've tried to like stdlib, but eventually failed, for reasons similar
to Mike Pall's and because of dissatisfaction with the documentation.
The module docs are not totally complete. I suspect I am hitting some
obscure LuaDoc bug.
