Metalua's compiler: converting (Meta)lua source strings and files into executable Lua 5.1 bytecode
$ luarocks install metalua-compiler
This is the Metalua copmiler, packaged as a rock, depending
on the spearate metalua-parser AST generating library. It
compiles a superset of Lua 5.1 into bytecode, which can
then be loaded and executed by a Lua 5.1 VM. It also allows
to dump ASTs back into Lua source files.
