Annotation of wikisrc/projects/project/lua_bindings_chicken_and_egg.mdwn, revision 1.1
1.1 ! mspo 1: [lua](http://www.lua.org/) is obviously a great choice for an embedded scripting language in both [kernel space](https://www.netbsd.org/gallery/presentations/mbalmer/fosdem2012/kernel_mode_lua.pdf) and [user space](https://www.netbsd.org/gallery/presentations/mbalmer/fosdem2011/lua_in_netbsd.pdf).
! 3: However, there exists a issue where lua needs [bindings](http://lua-users.org/wiki/BindingCodeToLua) to interface with NetBSD for it to be useful.
! 5: Someone needs to take on the grunt-work task of simply creating lua interfaces into every possible NetBSD component.
! 7: That same someone needs to produce meaningful documentation.
! 9: As this enhances lua's usefulness, more lua bindings will then be created, etc.
! 11: This project's goal is to set that inertia by attempting to define and create a solid baseline of lua bindings.
! 13: ### Here is a list of things to possibly target
! 15: * filesystem hooks
! 16: * sysctl hooks
! 17: * proplib
! 18: * envsys
! 19: * MI system bus code
! 20: * gpio
