Very nice. I've been using Lua for 18 months but Serpent taught me
something I never quite realized before: a "long comment" can
be shorter than a "short comment".
--[[ Initialize ]] x=2
--[[ Newton iteration ]] repeat local y=x; x=(x+2/x)/2
--[[ Convergence test ]] until x>=y
It runs under Lua 5.2 but does not treat "goto" as a keyword.
