I didn't see anything os-specific that could easily be removed (by me), but I did make a test with a non-Xft FLTK installation (1.1.7 stable doesn't work, by the way), disabling lfs, sqlite, LZO, and iostring (luasocket is a little more tricky, since it's used in multiple files). The result came out to about 305k, though I haven't compared its performance.

It got me thinking that perhaps some of the slowdown is in the Xft version of murgaLua? Just a guess, though. I have no idea if you were comparing 0.5.5 Xft with 0.4 non-Xft. I can see a slight performance difference between Xft and non-Xft within the same release

Yes. Since I had added the libXft library I was using the xft version.

The difference is much more noticeable on older low end machines.

But it is true about memory consumption. Newer version consumes more:

ps cpanel.lua

0.4    3272
0.5.5 3520 non-xft
0.5.5 4848

Even running non-GUI lua scripts show a slowdown, i.e., more time needed to complete the same task, tested with time.

I would still encourage their project to please try to stay trim and FAST!

I will update to v0.5.5 nonXft for now.

Thanks for your input, mikshaw.
