Hi Lua users,
I have just released version 0.7 of lua-repl, an alternative to the
standalone REPL included with Lua and a library for embedding a Lua
REPL within a Lua application.
lua-repl provides a library for adding a Lua REPL to your Lua-powered
application. It also provides an example REPL in the form of rep.lua,
which can take the place of the standalone interpreter provided with
Lua. It has a plugin facility; plugins for things like history and tab
completion of symbols are included in the lua-repl distribution.
0.7 includes some filename completion functionality implemented by
Henry Kielmann; it also prepares for an upcoming break in backwards
compatibility when reading a user's configuration file. For more
details, please consult the changelog  and the README .
You can install lua-repl via Luarocks (called luarepl there), or manually from the source .
