This is a work version. All details may change in the final version.
Here are the main changes since the previous work version:
- new _ENV proposal
- generational collector (very experimental)
- light C functions
- order tag methods follow the same rules of other binary operators
- \0 in patterns
- empty statement
- options in io.lines
The manual has been updated and most glitches reported in work2 have been fixed.
The complete diffs are available at
(This is a very large diff because the manual has been rearranged.)
All work versions are available at
All feedback welcome. Thanks.
The .pc file is still missing. I know that lua developpers mentioned the uber-stupid argument "we remove all the files that we consider as not needed in the tarball". But more importantly, you are breaking the build of *all* the libraries / programs that use lua and the .pc file. Doing so means that you absolutely don't care about the lua *users*.
Also, in case you didn't remark, we are in 2010. Even the embedded devices can deal with a tarball of 223.1KB instead of 223KB.
So, please, add again that **small** .pc file.
