I really appreciate the efforts of all authors that
contribute C modules for Lua. It really makes it clear
that Lua community is very much alive and kicking.
As much as I love Lua, I am a Windows guy and that
as a fact is making hard for me to appreciate the
functionality of such modules. I am pretty sure that
there are even more people that hit a full stop when
they encounter the need to compile a specific Lua
extension that they have found.
The lack of C knowledge is a severe hit to the common
Lua scripter, although the module authoring in its
entirety (only some few commentable efforts are excluded)
is ignoring the windows operating system and doesn't
release compiled binaries for the win32.
I would like to know why such culture exists.
Is there something I am missing on how to easily
obtain compiled binaries (apart from the Lua-aio,
Lua4win, and the rest)?
