Lua Esecuzione di programmi Lua


Esempio

Di solito, Lua viene spedito con due file binari:

  • lua - interprete indipendente e shell interattiva
  • compilatore luac -bytecode

Diciamo che abbiamo un programma di esempio ( bottles_of_mate.lua ) come questo:

local string = require "string"    

function bottle_take(bottles_available)

    local count_str = "%d bottles of mate on the wall."
    local take_str = "Take one down, pass it around, " .. count_str
    local end_str = "Oh noes, " .. count_str
    local buy_str = "Get some from the store, " .. count_str
    local bottles_left = 0

    if bottles_available > 0 then
         print(string.format(count_str, bottles_available))
         bottles_left = bottles_available - 1
         print(string.format(take_str, bottles_left))
    else
        print(string.format(end_str, bottles_available))
        bottles_left = 99
        print(string.format(buy_str, bottles_left))
    end

    return bottles_left
end

local bottle_count = 99

while true do
    bottle_count = bottle_take(bottle_count)
end

Il programma stesso può essere eseguito eseguendo in seguito sulla tua shell:

$ lua bottles_of_mate.lua

L'output dovrebbe assomigliare a questo, correndo nel ciclo infinito:

Get some from the store, 99 bottles of mate on the wall.
99 bottles of mate on the wall.
Take one down, pass it around, 98 bottles of mate on the wall.
98 bottles of mate on the wall.
Take one down, pass it around, 97 bottles of mate on the wall.
97 bottles of mate on the wall.
...
...
3 bottles of mate on the wall.
Take one down, pass it around, 2 bottles of mate on the wall.
2 bottles of mate on the wall.
Take one down, pass it around, 1 bottles of mate on the wall.
1 bottles of mate on the wall.
Take one down, pass it around, 0 bottles of mate on the wall.
Oh noes, 0 bottles of mate on the wall.
Get some from the store, 99 bottles of mate on the wall.
99 bottles of mate on the wall.
Take one down, pass it around, 98 bottles of mate on the wall.
...

Puoi compilare il programma nel bytecode di Lua eseguendo il seguente comando sulla tua shell:

$ luac bottles_of_mate.lua -o bottles_of_mate.luac

Anche l'elenco bytecode è disponibile eseguendo quanto segue:

$ luac -l bottles_of_mate.lua
