I like everything about Lua as a language
(yes, in-your-face array1/#/nil haters!) I have turned to it for
basically every programming task for nearly two years now.
However I've come to the sad conclusion that I will have to use
something else for library support. For instance I just bought a book on
using Python with instrumentation and I'd like to use examples in the book.
I don't write production quality code, it's just quick stuff for my own
use most of the time, speed and size are not an issue right now. C would
be perfect for nearly everything I need except I am really hating C
right now and it's just not quick and dirty. I also don't really like
Python very much but the the libraries are calling me out to sea like a
I found Lunatic-Python
but it does not seem to build out of the box and I fear this approach
may have been abandoned. I believe io.popen is just one way in Lua, so I
am assuming this is not a great solution or is there a two way
approach?. Does anyone have any tips on using Python with Lua or perhaps
other workarounds to access the large library base?
Thanks for reading-Patrick
