Duration Duration

14 hours (usually 2 days including breaks)

Requirements Requirements

A good understanding of the basics of the Lua programming language

Overview Overview

This Lua course teaches how to interact with Lua from C (and/or other programming languages).

We discuss integration in both directions: how to embed C code in Lua (eg. for performance gains), and how to make a C/C++/Java program extensible with Lua.

As an in-class exercise we create a small program that is extensible with Lua.

The course also tackles the Lua virtual machine and teaches how to understand the bytecode underpinning the language.

This course can serve an add-on to the Lua Fundamentals or Lua Advanced courses in which case a shorter (1 day) version can be organized.
