I think I get it now. Lua really is an 'embedded' language.
I find it hard to believe that people are rolling their own ad hoc
functionality on the fly, but that is the way it is. I had wondered
how the node.js kids were going to address things like POSIX etc:
is how. It's a good idea to have standard libs of some kind, just in
case one inherits a project. I remember, usually in the wee hours of
the morning a scream, how it was like years ago with PHP. Lots of
great code, all different etc. Every deployment was an adventure!
I was younger then.
Well, I guess it's time to start porting!
