	It seems that PLUA is shareware (as in not free). I wrote
an email to the author and he said that PLUA do have an expiration
date and that there is no source code available. 

	In my (very little) free time I am starting a new port of
lua to the palm plataform, that I intend to release with the same
license of the original LUA (I would rather do it GPL, but I am not
shure if I can do it or not, so I take the safe path). I already
managed to compile lua with the palm gcc, but no tests were done 
with this compiled code. I am only begging the development with palm
so I don't have a lot of experience. If you or any other show any 
interest in helping me I would gladly setup a page or something so 
that we could put our hands in the code. :-)
