have the gut feeling that more people are used to writing/reading
embedded both in host programs to check their fitness for the task at
hand. They are not good candidates according to my judgment, huge,
massive, big memory fingerprint. I really don't see those languages
as good canidates for general use. Python, Perl, Lua, otoh, could be
seen as natural candidates. ymmv.
That is why I only talked about the other languages in my mail.
Actually, I did want to talk about any other language, as I think the
features of Lua should stand for theirselves and everyone can look at
Lua, any other language and draw his own conclusions.
I was looking at:
- memory footprint
- execution speed
- setup/startup speed (loading a binary with the language interpreter
- language (syntax, features)
- ease of use (aka ease of learning)
- reference use
