Lua is a free, fast, embeddable, portable, small, powerful, yet simple, proven and robust scripting language designed for extending applications.

The Lua programming language combines powerful data description constructs, which are based on extensible semantics and associative arrays, with simple procedural syntax.

Lua is interpreted from bytecodes, dynamically typed, and features automatic memory management with garbage collection, making it the perfect tool for scripting, rapid prototyping, and configuration.

Lua also includes a small library of C functions, written in ANSI C. Lua is pronounced “LOO-ah” and it means "Moon" in Portuguese.
