Functions first class objects. Its like a lambda function in Python (or
Perl??) if you've used those. I think a function is just a closure assigned
to a variable. If you paste code into
http://doris.sourceforge.net/lua/weblua.php and hit the luac button you can
get an understanding of what Lua compiles into and how it all works (Good if
you want efficient code).
