Hey ho Lua folk!
If you start a SourceForge project, you get shell access automatically (http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Shell%20service). Which is nice.
But there's no Lua on the system. Here's the fastest way to get an interpreter after you logged in to the shell:
wget luaos.net/getlua.sh && sh getlua.sh
Nice, eh? Please help improve this script - let's make it work everywhere.
Here's the current source:
# This works, e.g., in a SourceForge shell and produces a Lua 5.2.1 interpreter (as ./lua)
# (SourceForge doesn't provide a Lua interpreter by default)
# by Stefan Reich (email@example.com)
tar xvfz lua-5.2.1.tar.gz
cp src/lua ../
./lua -e "print 'OK: Lua 5.2.1 works! (./lua)'"
Simple, I know... but it's a start! :)
PS: Please ignore the voices on this list that might, once again, try to label me insane in any way. I'm not insane at all. Thanks.
