Scripting languages are embedded into other software environments to automate processes at the application level, improve performance and reliability, introduce new functions to applications, and integrate complex systems.
At the command line, they can be used to execute programs on servers and present the appropriate results to the users. They are easier to learn and implement than traditional languages since they do not require compilers to execute.
Among the most popular scripting languages is Lua, which finds itself extensively used in the gaming industry as it can be used to create added functionality without contaminating the overall performance. Recently, a large number of non-gaming companies use the language for extensibility purposes.
Continue reading as we take a deeper dive into the applications of Lua as a general embeddable extension language. The following list should help you gain a better understanding of the full potential of Lua and how you can implement new features into your projects with scripting languages.Read More
