README for LuaJIT 1.1.8

Build Status

LuaJIT 2.0 is available with much improved performance!

LuaJIT is a Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler for the Lua programming language.

Lua is a powerful, light-weight programming language designed for extending applications. Lua is also frequently used as a general-purpose, stand-alone language. More information about Lua can be found in the docs (see below) or at: http://www.lua.org/

LuaJIT 1.x is based on the Lua 5.1.x virtual machine and bytecode interpreter from lua.org. It compiles bytecode to native x86 (i386+) machine code to speed up the execution of Lua programs.
