What is LuaJIT?

LuaJIT is a Just-In-Time (JIT) Compiler for Lua. It's fully
compatible with standard Lua 5.1 and can significantly boost the
performance of your Lua programs.

LuaJIT is open source software, released under the MIT/X license.
LuaJIT builds out-of-the-box on most x86 or x64 operating systems
(Linux, Windows, OSX etc.).

This is a BETA TEST release -- the current status and the list of
known issues are shown here:
Please report any problems you may find with this release. Thank you!


About the PPC/e500 port of the LuaJIT interpreter: please note
this will _not_ run on other PPC-based machines (e.g. game
consoles). A port of the JIT compiler and/or a port to other
PowerPC CPUs may follow later.

Here's a direct link to the FFI docs:

ARM port and the FFI library can be found in the LuaJIT roadmap 2011:
