Hi Steve, thx for the reply.

My opinion is - Not everybody is a guru, able of solving dependencies hell
in sleep... - so it is very good job, that you've done with your "bat
included" pack for Windows. Press install and enjoy working environment!

I will look forward for the Linux one! What really counts (my opinion) is
functionality and ease of use. It will be like a dream: true cross platform
programmming with native GUI (wxWidgets).


Yes, newest wxLua version seams to be available only as source, no

Thanks one more time
