True. But Lua seems to be so small, powerfull and fast, that its also a
real choice for stand alone programms. I need a language wich has all
the benefits like fast development, simple to understand, clever syntax,
portable and so on - I am so happy to find Lua.
C, Java... need to much development time
Python... I think the syntax system is stupid, because I like
to format it readable:
print (" Function ",Function )
if Delimiter then print (" Delimiter ",Delimiter ) end
print (" String ",String )
print ("Expression ",Expression)
PHP... the other side of a language x-thousand commands
Perl... to cryptic
Ruby... ? never used
Pike... more like C I think
tcl... ? never used
