Why Lua


This article discusses our reasons for choosing Lua. (Basically it is the fastest and simplest language available for a scripting based mapper. )

All scripts in the Iguana Translator are written in Lua, a powerful programming language. Lua employs a relatively simple API based on straight-forward logic that can be easily applied to complex integration scenarios. The result? A lightweight and flexible tool that makes scripting accessible to a wide range of users!

Still got questions? For more comprehensive information about Lua, we recommend Programming in Lua and the Lua online reference manual.
