Hello all!

Well, I don't want to sound like a zealot or anything, but is it possible to have a super Lua script that generate shell scripts or batch files or Makefiles to build the source? I know there's a "chicken-and-egg" problem here, but in my mind, this would be most appealing. To keep fstat related parts out of the base Lua (for file timestamp), the code dependency tree could just pedanticaly compile each file. It sure would be nice to have the config file represented as a Lua table, no?

if you want CGILua just for Xavante, there's no need to compile it.  the
'make cgi' builds an executable that any webserver can launch.  since
Xavante is a pure Lua webserver, it doesn't need any launcher.

just put the lua sources of cgilua in the LUA_PATH.  the only things
that need compiling are loadable modules, like luafilesystem.

If it ain't broke, break it.  How else are you going to figure out how it works?
