> 0. How to run Lua scripts from command line?
Only the GUI app supports Lua scripting. I didn't really think there
would be much desire for scripting in the command line version.
I'll have a look at adding that in version 1.2. It shouldn't be too
hard to move all the Lua-interface code out of gui-wx/wxlua.cpp and
into a new scripting.cpp file in the basecode directory.
> 1. How can I add Russian lexicon?
If you want to use Cyrillic then not possible. The current lexicon
format uses the MacRoman encoding internally (Ag is a re-write of an
old Mac program I wrote in the early 90s). MacRoman allows lexicons
to support many non-English languages (French, German, Italian, etc)
but retain the simplicity and speed of one byte per letter.
I've thought about adding support for Unicode lexicons but it would
be a lot of work. Until then, the best you can do would be to create
a text file with "anglicized" Russian words and use "Load Lexicon"
to load that file, then "Save Lexicon" to create a .lex file.

I probably need to add something like Build.html to the docs directory.
There are some simple build notes in the comments at the top of the

All the code I've written (ie. everything outside the lua directory)
is in the public domain.

need to make some fairly simple changes to gui-wx/makefile-gtk.
Might be as easy as changing the LUADIR path.
