LuaBinaries
Pre-compiled Lua libraries and executables.

Packaging

The package files available for download are named according to the platform where they were build.

In UNIX all strings are based in the result of the command "uname -a". The package name is a concatenation of the platform uname, the system major version number and the system minor version number. Some times a suffix must be added to complement the name. The compiler is always gcc. Binaries for 64-bits receive the suffix: "_64". In Linux when there are different versions of gcc for the same uname, the platform name is created adding the major version number of the compiler added as a suffix: "g3" for gcc 3 and "g4" for gcc 4.

In Windows the platform name is the compiler and its major version number.

All library packages (*_lib*) contains binaries for the specified platform and includes. Packages with "_bin" suffix contains executables only.

The package name is a general reference for the platform. If you have the same platform it will work fine, but it may also work in similar platforms.

Here are some examples of packages:

lua-5.2_AIX43_64_bin.tar.gz = Lua 5.2.0 64-bits Executables for AIX version 4.3
lua-5.2_Linux26g4_lib.tar.gz = Lua 5.2.0 32-bits Libraries and Includes for Linux with Kernel version 2.6 to use with gcc 4.
lua-5.2_Win32_dll8_lib.tar.gz = Lua 5.2.0 32-bits DLLs, stub libraries and includes for Windows to use with Visual C++ 8.
