eBook Description:

Integrate Lua with C++: Discover the perfect synergy between C++ and Lua to create powerful, adaptable, and high-performing software solutions

C++ is a popular choice in the developer community for building complex and large-scale performant applications and systems. Often a need arises to extend the system at runtime, without recompiling the whole C++ program. Using a scripting language like Lua can help achieve this goal efficiently.

Integrate Lua to C++ is a comprehensive guide to integrating Lua to C++ and will enable you to achieve the goal of extending C++ programs at runtime. You’ll learn, in sequence, how to get and compile the Lua library, the Lua programming language, calling Lua code from C++, and calling C++ code from Lua. In each topic, you’ll practice with code examples, and learn the in-depth mechanisms for smooth working. Throughout the book, the latter examples build on the earlier ones while also acting as a standalone. You’ll learn to implement Lua executor and Lua binding generator, which you can use in your projects directly with further customizations.

  • Explore how to access and compile Lua source code
  • Call Lua code from C++ for enhanced functionality
  • Integrate C++ code into Lua for powerful interactions
  • Deepen your understanding of Lua stack for advanced usage
  • Implement a project-ready Lua executor and binding generator
  • Extend C++ projects with customizable and extensible Lua scripting

By the end of this Integrate Lua with C++ book, you’ll have mastered integrating Lua into C++ and using Lua in your C++ project efficiently, gained the skills to extend your applications at runtime, and achieved dynamic and adaptable C++ development.
