Beginning Lua Programming (Programmer to Programmer)

Buy
If so, you’ll find this versatile and fast programming language called Lua to be the perfect tool. Lua has a gentle learning curve that will enable you to write effective programs after only a short introduction. With it, simple programs look simple—there is no extraneous baggage you need to add to your programs or peculiar syntax to which you need to conform to make them run. From the examples in the preceding list, you can see that Lua is quite appropriate for use by technically adept individuals who aren’t necessarily programmers.

At the other end of the continuum, Lua has features that support advanced program requirements. It imposes very few conventions on the way you write your programs, instead providing mechanisms with which you can construct clear and maintainable solutions to your programming tasks. Even experienced software developers find novel and powerful ways of using Lua to extend and simplify their applications.

Lua is robust, yet its mild entry curve makes it quite suitable as a first programming language. In combination, these make Lua an attractive language for students and professionals alike.
  • A small yet extraordinarily powerful programming language, Lua achieved its popularity early on as a video game scripting language and has since evolved into a general purpose programming language that is compact enough to fit on a variety of host platforms
  • This book provides programmers, game developers, and Web site developers with an in-depth look at the various aspects of programming in Lua
  • Complete code samples with practical applications and robust error handling offers beginners helpful learning tools
  • Diagrams provide a visual glimpse behind the scenes of important Lua features such as stacks, hash tables, garbage collection, lexical scope, and function closures
  • Features discussions on managing memory, garbage collection, using libraries, strings, tables, extending Lua, event handling, databases, and Web and game programming

Fiber-Optic Communication Systems
Fiber-Optic Communication Systems
Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1992, the state of the art of fiber-optic communication systems has advanced dramatically despite the relatively short period of only 10 years between the first and third editions. For example, the highest capacity of commercial fiber-optic links available in 1992 was only 2.5 Gb/s. A mere...

Information Processing and Living Systems (Advances in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology)
Information Processing and Living Systems (Advances in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology)
Information processing and information flow occur in the course of an organism's development and throughout its lifespan. Organisms do not exist in isolation, but interact with each other constantly within a complex ecosystem. The relationships between organisms, such as those between prey or predator, host and parasite, and between mating...
