- Subject: C++ & Lua for people like me?

Sorry for the flame war bait...... I need to make a decision and this
list is an excellent resource.
I know other list members are using Lua and C++ but nearly everyone else
on this list, appear to be professional day-coders(and bright ones at
that). I just program when I can.
I have wanted to build a GUI app for some time and I have also been
recently tempted by Pythons libraries. I know there are many GUI
language bindings and GTK is C by default but it seems that C++ would
open up lots of GUI doors(+ documentation) and other libraries doors
too, it's just that C++ scares the hell out of me.
It seems that there are a lot of people calling it bloated and buggy and
even professionals seem to stick to a subset because it's so big.
Would Lua allow me to stick to an even smaller subset? If so, do you
have any recommendations about what parts of C++ to skim over and to use
Lua for instead(like perhaps the string library?).
Thanks for reading-Patrick
