Lua/APR: An extended standard library for Lua

0 0

Lua is a very elegant programming language, both because of its conceptual simplicity and the small size of its implementation, but this small size comes with a price: Lua's operating system interfaces are quite minimal and (in a sense) this makes Lua a second-class citizen on popular platforms like Windows and UNIX systems. In this presentation the author will talk about Lua/APR, a binding of the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) for Lua. The talk will start with the author's motivation for creating the binding, followed by a short introduction to APR and its origins.
