Bog-standard Lua. Nope, but the acronym makes me giggle.

"No Compiler Lua"? NC-Lua? hmmmm....

Lua Without Compilers? Push Button Lua? Complete Off the Shelf Lua (COTS Lua).

I like Push Button Lua.

Thoughts anyone? Unfortunately I know only one spoken language and
don't read enough literature. I'm amenable to historic references or
fables from any culture.
