ConcurrentLua Description ConcurrentLua is a system that implements a concurrency model for the Lua programming language. It is based on the share-nothing asynchronous message-passing model that is employed in the Erlang programming language. ConcurrentLua extends Lua's coroutines with message-passing primitives, in order to support concurrent programming. Distributed programming is supported transparently with the same message-passing primitives. ConcurrentLua is implemented as a collection of Lua modules that can be loaded by any Lua program. Most of the code is written in Lua itself, with minor parts written in C.
