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.
