I finally had some time to finish reading the last Lua doc.
As always, it is a pleasant reading, the document is clear and well written.
A bit terse in some areas though, some more examples in the library section
I don't see it as a end user documentation: the C API is of no use for
script writers, and references to C (a lot in the libraries, eg. strftime)
should be expanded, as some users may not know this language.
To experienced programmers, I think the Lua manaul is great. It's so
concise that when a new version comes out, I can give it a slow read and
know exactly what Lua is (and what has changed) in less than an hour.
If you're looking for something more, there is Roberto's book to look
forward to. Certainly it would also be nice to see some complete 3rd
