lua 5.2 novelties pdf

Ran across this link, may be of interest:

An interesting point comes up with bitlib (which I’m excited about) - in Lua, numbers are double floats - except not ours. I wonder what that will break, if indeed anything.

Yeah that’s true. Will have to look into that. Thanks for linking the PDF, looks pretty interesting.

At the moment I’m having trouble exporting custom user data objects like vec2, image, and so on under Lua 5.2.

It looks like Lua’s bit library is 32 bit. So the numbers-as-floats won’t break anything. (Lua supports this configuration officially, as well.)
