It was thus said that the Great beo wulf once stated:

  Can I safely assume you mean x86 assembly code and not the Lua VM
"assembly code"?  Also, can you give more details?  Are you talking about
something like:

function = assemble [[

somename:	push	ebp
		mov	ebp,esp
		sub	esp,#somespace
		mov	eax,[ebp+incoming]

(pardon the Assembly---it's been quite a while since I last worked in it)

  I can see wanting to skip C++, but what's wrong with C?
