Hi all and Steve in particular!
I'm in the process of revamping my C skills and I'd like to study Lua
sources as an example of very well-written code using the annotated
source by Steve Donovan found at:
I'd appreciate any hint or suggestion on which learning path could be
best to understand the inner workings of Lua (i.e. from which file to
begin with, etc.). Moreover, any caveat against what I intend to do is
On a related note: is the annotated code updated to the latest patch or
is it the original 5.1.4 release with no patch applied?
1. are you going to update the code to the latest patch, if it is not
2. are you going to publish annotated code also for 5.2.0 now it is
3. it seems that there is a typo on
near the top beside print.c: shouldn't *dissembler* read *disassembler*?
4. On the same page there is no mention of the file llimits.h (apart
from llimits.h:MAXSTACK in the index of annotations). Is this
intentional or should it be included in one of the upper sections (e.g.
the "Virtual Machine" one)?
TIA & Cheers!
