> Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of scripting languages and of Lua: I introduced Lua into my organization and continue to push its use. But I remain reluctant to use Lua for really large apps. Is my reluctance misplaced? Have others successfully developed and maintained large 100,000+ line apps in Lua?
On my previous job, we had 160+ KLOC of Lua and 100+ KLOC of C++ in
our (server) application. We are quite happy with our choice.
To be happy, of course, one need to use global environment protection,
write enough unit tests and have some coding discipline.
