Okay... but is there anything like a "golden package of rocks" /
"extensions" -- something that most developers use, i.e. most
developers use for the common purpose (e.g. parsing XML, templating,
bit-operations etc.). Going through the rocks catalog for instance, I
found that there are several of those, for same purpose, so how do I
pick & choose. Do I stick to the ones supplied by Ubuntu repos, or go
beyond, and if I do -- which ones ??
Would you like something like http://ruby-toolbox.com/? I use it when
I have to search for a Ruby Gem, and sometimes miss it for Lua. It
it trivial to find choices and pick those you should evaluate.
Is there something like this in the Lua community? The wiki comes close
but the interface is not as easy to use.
