Description

This is a set of Rust bindings to Lua 5.1.

The goal is to provide a (relatively) safe interface to Lua that closely mirrors its C API.

The bindings are complete, but largely untested. Every non-unsafe function does its best to enforce safety. Lua 5.1.5 was used as a reference for internal implementation details that affect safety (e.g. stack space needed for auxlib functions).

Unfortunately, there are very few tests. It turns out to be complicated to properly test the Lua C API, and there are very few examples that could be used as tests. Please let me know if there are any bugs.

Installation

make all

To run the tests, use the test make target:

make test
