Hi Luiz,

I wrote something about our usage of Lua, maybe you'd like to add this too:

Hands Browser
Hands Mobile Solutions - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (

Hands is a Brazilian software company that provides technology for
developing and deploying content, marketing and business applications to
mobile platforms like PDAs and Cell Phones.

Our PDA solution relies on a offline browser that uses Lua 4.0 as it's
scripting language. Lua is also used to create dynamic pages based on a
internal relational database and some configuration scripts. Other Hands
Browser's nice features include:

- LuaSockets TCP/IP layer for HTTP, FTP and email support;
- MD5 encryption and decryption;
- XML/HTML content grabbing;
- XSLT formatting templates;
- Complete API for creating business and content PDA applications;
- Bitmap and animated GIF display;
- HTTP Sync capabilities;
- Available both for PalmOS and Windows/CE;

Lua was chosen because of its portability, speed, small footprint, and easy
of embedding into host programs written in C.
