LISP has similar problems, with the empty list representing both nil and false. Scheme explicitly represents false and treats the empty list as true, but some implementations of Scheme still treat the empty list as false. 1 had three syntactical constructs to create tables: ‘@()’, ‘@[]’, and ‘@{}’. The simplest form was ‘@()’, which created an empty table. An optional size could be given at creation time, as an efficiency hint. The form ‘@[]’ was used to create arrays, as in ‘@[2,4,9,16,25]’. In such tables, the keys were implicit natural numbers starting at 1.

0. 1 we added variants Lua was becoming a mature product and needed stability for the benefit of its growing community. Nevertheless, the need for stability has not hindered progress. 0, have been released since then. The long times between versions also reflects our release model. 2 This release model has proved to be good for Lua stability. Several products have been shipped with alpha or beta versions of Lua and worked fine. However, this release model did not give users much chance to experiment with new versions; it also deprived us of timely feedback on proposed changes.

Several Tecgraf products were interactive graphical programs for engineering applications at Petrobras. By 1993, Tecgraf had developed little languages for two of those applications: a data-entry application and a configurable report generator for lithology profiles. These languages, called DEL and SOL, were the ancestors of Lua. We describe them briefly here to show where Lua came from. Efficiency: Independent benchmarks [1] show Lua to be one of the fastest languages in the realm of interpreted scripting languages.
