Electro is an application development environment designed for use on cluster-driven tiled displays, virtual reality systems, and desktop workstations. Electro is based on the MPI process model and is bound to the Lua programming language. With support for 3D graphics, 2D graphics, audio, networking, and input handling, Electro provides an easy-to-use scripting system for interactive applications spanning multiple hosts and a variety of displays.
The executable takes a list of Lua files as parameters. Each file is executed in turn. Here, the Asteroids game is used as an example:
To run Asteroids under Linux or OS X:
$ electro asteroids.lua
To run the asteroidss under Windows:
C:\> electro.exe asteroids.lua
Alternatively, drag and drop the asteroids.lua icon onto ELECTRO.BAT.
