"Lua 1.0 was developed as a data-description language for Petrobras, the Brazillian oil company. It’s hard to be any more “industrial” than that.
Highly recommended is the authors’ HOPL paper, An Evolution of Lua.
Also incidentally, one of the defining of features of Lua (all along) that hasn’t been mentioned in this thread is extensible semantics. In Lua, reading from or writing to a table can mean anything you want it to mean. So, lots of fancy features (inheritance, laziness, autocreation of subtables, functions with private state, memoizing, currying) can be implemented by the user in just a few lines, instead of having to be built into the language core."
I have found some audio sketches on my hard drive and released them in a rather raw form.
My clipped tracks will blow your speakers.
Recently I’ve stumbled upon a branch of fish shell tweaked to work well on OS X. It was really great but I was missing some neat commands I had in my zsh. I tried to replicate them but failed at first mostly because fish does IO redirection in a different way.
After half an hour of googling and another half an hour of pulling my hairs while trying to fix a lot of strange errors I succeeded! And here goes the result. To use it put these files into ~/.config/fish/functions/ folder. Create it if it doesn’t exist.
pfdir.fish will print folder path of the topmost Finder’s window
pfsel.fish will print the paths to all selected files and folders of the topmost Finder’s window
Have to say I couldn’t do it without already existing and great oh-my-zsh plugin: https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/blob/master/plugins/osx/osx.plugin.zsh
It’s definitely worth checking out if you prefer zsh.
