The version may be a big part of my trouble. I've been playing around with Lua 5, and using documentation from that version.
The example Flua files have helped me the most so far, particularly with syntax. I began by seeing a lot of great features in the documents, and when I tried to use those features all I'd get were errors. It seems that the Flua docs asume you already have a good understanding of Lua syntax. At this point it's a bit confusing to understand why sometimes you'd use "box=", for example, when at other times you'd use "boxtype=".
The more I work with it, however, the more I enjoy it. When I remember how it was when I first started doing Flash script, and then Bash script, i was stumbling with a lot of things that now are as simple as tying shoes...so that gives me hope =o)
Maybe eventually I'll even be doing real programming in C++, although so far I've been enjoying the fact that scripting allows you to accomplish tasks using no more than human-readable text files.
