Hi Holly

BTW, I think when Roberto was saying Lua is not good for numeric computations he probably meant in comparison to C and Fortran in the context of super-computing. To my knowledge  Lua does not have a quality issue in terms of math but being dynamically typed it will have a quantity penalty, compared to statically typed languages.
