Lua Embeddable Script Interpreter
$Id: readme.txt.in,v 23d0d58bef85 2012/02/15 22:36:14 keithmarshall $
This is a prepackaged binary distribution of Lua, built from original
sources from Lua.org, and adapted for installation by mingw-get as a
component of a MinGW (mingw32) system. It differs from a standard
Lua.org build in the following respects:
- Modified source code provides improved support for cross-compiling.
- Within liblua.a, which is built as a static library, the included
object modules are unencumbered by dll_export attributes.
- An additional library, liblua.dll.a is provided; this is an import
library for use in association with the accompanying DLL.
The principal motivation for providing these packages is to support
scripting capabilities within mingw-get. Thus, the MinGW Project offers
no committment to maintain these packages in perpetuity, (other than as
may be required to maintain mingw-get itself), to follow evolutionary
development originating from Lua.org; please do not ask us for any such
committment. If you do wish to follow such evolutionary development,
you are advised to obtain the updated sources directly from Lua.org, and
build for yourself; (you are, of course, welcome to adopt any build
technique employed in the creation of these MinGW packages).
