My runtimes on :
"for i = 1,1024*1024*64 do local z = {} end"   1m5s with lua 5.1.2
compiled with Gnutool chain, using the default makefile on Windows
2003SP2 2.16Ghz Core2 box.

local z, max = {}, 1024*1024*32
  for i = 1,max do z[i] = i % 16 end
  for i = 1,max do z[i] = { z[i] } end
  for i = 1,max do
    if (z[i][1]) ~= i % 16 then error("mallocator is broken") end

doesn't run gives error: unexpected symbol near %  .. did u mean some
other operator.

What processor specifications did u run on ?
Is there any specific performance that you are looking ?
