Resources to get started with Lua


Here's a list of links to help you get off your feet and get into Lua: -- Learn Lua in 15 minutes (only for programmers familiar with the basics) -- Lua tutorial (written for Lua 5.0, but still works fine for 5.1) -- Lua reference manual for looking up specific functions -- The ULib documentation -- The Gmod lua documentation - Online lua shell, great for practicing what you learn and want to test. (No Glua(Gmod Lua) of course, but will help you practice basics)
