Hey folks. I am trying to pick up some Lua knowledge so I'm not completely helpless where scripting is concerned. Thanks to Google, I have found a few good resources and I thought it would be nice to share them here so other scripting newbies can find help.
Also, the Lua site itself has a ton of information
The Lua Users Wiki also hosts links to other resources
Recently translated into English, this site has a good 'walkthrough' style introduction to Lua, though the author refers to it as LUA for some reason
LuaForge hosts a ton of projects that seem interesting and/or useful
The Lua Reference Manual
Other useful things:
I personally am a huge fan of Notepad++ for Windows (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
), which has support for Lua that can be further extended with language files/plugins
I hope someone else finds this to be useful. If anyone knows of other good resources, I would encourage them to share!
Also, a good tip I received - the best way to learn is by doing. An easy way to do that is to grab binaries from the LuaBinaries project and just start writing some scripts. good luck have fun!
