"The book is a detailed and authoritative introduction to all aspects of Lua programming, by Lua's chief architect. The first edition was aimed at Lua 5.0 and remains largely relevant. (See the errata.)

If you find this online version useful, please consider buying a copy of the second edition, which updates the text to Lua 5.1 and brings substantial new material. This helps to support the Lua project."

This should answer, and address, both your questions.
