For those of you wishing to learn the Lua programming language, check out this website - http://tylerneylon.com/a/learn-lua/

The website is meant for people that already know programming and computer logic. The point of the site is to teach Lua. I already know some programming languages, so this website is wonderful just showing me how Lua is structured.

I haven't looked a lua in years, but I found it to be a perfect fit for what I needed a while back.

I had developed and was maintaining a test setup that required frequent changes. So I added a small ad hoc configuration language that enabled me to make changes without recompiling. It worked great at first.

But I kept needing to add more support for different hardware and special cases, so the language grew uglier and uglier as I added syntax as needed at the moment in a way that wouldn't conflict with everything else. I realized I was in desperate need of an embedded language that was simple yet flexible and very extensible. I searched.

I found lua. I hacked out my crude language, dropped in lua, extended it, used it for a few years and loved it.
