Post Lua; Tools and (eventually) a tutorial.
Eventually I'll be expanding this to include a tutorial on basic Lua scripting and the works, but for now, I only have a tool for you. The tool is called Brain Damage. Brain Damage is a program that takes Lua and gives you the output. It's licensed under Gnu so no warez to be had. http://codetank.com/wiki/index.php/Brain_Damage
Enjoy your tasty Luas.

Personally, I don't really like Brain Damage. It is good as a stand alone Lua interpreter, but that's all I'd use it for. It isn't good for writing code. Notepad++ is a lot better, and comes default with syntax highlighting for Lua, not to mention like a billion other features.

Not that Brain Damage isn't useful, it's just that it's about as useful as the in-browser Lua interpreter that is on the Lua site.

For me, the best way to learn a langauge is to just look through the documentation. Just to see what it can do. But that's only if you know basic programming stuff, and you understand the vocabulary.

This manual is pretty good for learning what Lua can do:

Well BD allows you to execute the script and see your output instead of just writing it.
