I stumbled upon Lua when reading about Adobe Lightroom.
I write a text editor and backup software, under what circumstances
would I want to use Lua in my applications? What does it do for me?
With respect to text editing, you might want to look at Scite
(www.scintilla.org) for ideas. There's a version that's had Lua embedded
for various tasks. See http://gisdeveloper.tripod.com/scite.html
You could write a backup utility using Lua for most of the glue, leaving
the guts to be written as dll extensions. Toss in wxLua and you've got
potential for a GUI based platform-independent utility.
