As I looked into it more, it appears that that Scintillua requires Scintilla. I
don't want the whole control - just the lexing for lua. I'm not sure how easy
it will be to separate the lexer from Scintilla.
Adapting it to your app is a practical option. Just take
LexLua.cxx as a recipe or specification -- it's only 384 lines,
quite readable, and does folding too. Once I took the highlighting
part, ported it to Lua and made a wiki-like highlighter for Lua
code, it came up to ~260 lines.
As a bonus, the latest release has been updated for highlighting
Lua 5.2 code too.
