Lua is a very nice and easy to learn scripting language specifically designed to be embedable and able to represent complex data.
- Clean syntax
- Simple yet extremely powerful and extensible datastructure, the tables, that can be used as hashtables, vectors, arrays, lists, namespaces, objects, ...
- Easily embedable into existing projects
- Very fast
- Can be compiled to bytecode(actaully it always is, but the bytecode can be dumped to a file for later reuse)
- Many other nifty things ;)
