README for LuaCLR 0.1 Alpha 1. What is LuaCLR LuaCLR is a compiler for the Lua 5.1 language that targets the Microsoft Common Language Runtime (CLR). Right now it also works on Mono, but this is not guaranteed in the future. Also, the compiler is not self-hosting, which means it depends on the Lua interpreter, but as it's implemented in a mix of Lua and C# it will be completely self-hosted when complete. The compiler aims for completeness (implementing as much of Lua 5.1, including the standard library, as possible) and speed (being faster than the Lua VM, and approaching LuaJIT). Also it should provide transparent interfacing between Lua and the rest of the CLR (at least as good as what LuaInterface provides). The current version is incomplete, and lacks most of the Lua standard library, as well as integration with the rest of the CLR. The design is also not fixed, and will probably change in the near future. LuaCLR is free software.

Installation Just do "make all" in Linux, or "nmake -f Makefile.win all" in Windows. 3. Running Run the compile shell script/bat file to compile a Lua file. You should run it from the root path of LuaCLR: compile myscript.lua This will generate a myscript.dll file. You can run it with run.exe: run.exe myscript You will probably see an error message, as there is a lot of functionality is still missing. :-) 4. Credits LuaCLR is designed by Fabio Mascarenhas.
