luaprompt 0.7

luaprompt is both an interactive Lua prompt that can be used instead of the official interpreter, as well as a module that provides a Lua command prompt that can be embedded in a host application. As a standalone interpreter it provides many conveniences that are missing from the official Lua interpreter. As an embedded prompt, it's meant for applications that use Lua as a configuration or interface language and can therefore benefit from an interactive prompt for debugging or regular use.
