BC and JAare happy to announce the availability of Lua on OpenVMS for Alpha and Integrity Servers.
Lua (http://www.lua.org) is a powerful, fast, lightweight, embeddable scripting language that combines simple procedural syntax with powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and extensible semantics. Lua is dynamically typed, runs by interpreting byte-codes using a register-based virtual machine, and has automatic memory management with incremental garbage collection, making it ideal for configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping tasks.
This OpenVMS port of Lua includes the core binary distribution and several extensions, including LuaExpat (XML support), LuaSocket (for developing networking applications), LuaProc (co-routines), and several others. It is anticipated that additional modules will be included in future releases.
Regards, BC&JAPlease use this blog for providing feedback, making suggestions, reporting bugs, and whatever material you feel worth publishing. Some feedback on what you are doing, or planning, with Lua will also be more than welcome. Kits may be requested by sending an email stating whether Alpha or Integrity or both to:
