23:03 jeffreykegler I finished Ierusalimschy's _Programming in Lua_ (I read the 3rd edition)
23:04 jeffreykegler I think it may go down as one of the classics alongside K&R, Dijkstra, etc.  The examples of code (Lua and C) are marvelously chosen and very well executed.
23:05 jeffreykegler I'd recommend it as a 1st coding book, except that the last part assumes knowledge of the C language.
23:08 jeffreykegler The first part do not actually *require* C, but C would be very helpful, and the first part *does* assume some previous knowledge of programming.
23:08 jeffreykegler So in effect PiL more or less requires a previous familiarity with C.

23:57 jeffreykegler Re the editions of Pil.  First edition is free, online.  2nd ed. is not free, and covers 5.1.  3rd ed is what I read.  I had to order it from Amazon, and it covers 5.2.
23:57 jeffreykegler 5.1 is what I currently plan to use.
23:58 jeffreykegler I'd suggest either 1st ed, if you don't want to buy a hard copy, or the 3rd, if you're willing to.
23:59 jeffreykegler The 3rd describes the differences where it uses features not in 5.1, and contains a lot of new, generally relevant material.
