Hi list,

a few years ago I experimented with running code like this


from a .tex file to obtain a Lua prompt, but found this method a bit
frustrating, I don't remember exactly why...

Now I am using something much nicer, based on Rob Roelz's lua-repl
(plus dednat6 and other bloat), and I finally got the time to pack it
and write something vaguely like documentation for it. It is here:


There you will find instructions for downloading and testing the code,
and this very important comment:

  ...And please do get in touch with me - I'm eduardoochs at gmail.com
  - to discuss new features that would make this easier to use!!! I
  always use this repl from Emacs and eev with eepitch (...) so I need
  very few features from the repl myself.

Cheers =),
  Eduardo Ochs
