Purpose: The file lua.exe inside the SIMION program folder is a Lua interpreter. It is described in 6. Lua Stand-alone. Although you can run Lua programs inside SIMION, there may be times at which you may want to run Lua programs using the standard Lua interpreter interface. Perhaps you want to run Lua programs outside of SIMION, or perhaps you need run some debugger or compile some code that depends on the existence of the lua.exe interpreter.
