The Lua Scripting Language in the NetBSD Kernel

The Lua scripting language has been designed from the ground up to be embedded in other software, usually written in languages like C or C++. In this talk, NetBSD developer Marc Balmer will present his ongoing work to use the Lua scripting language in the NetBSD kernel. He will present the general architecture of the lua(4) subsystem and how it can be used to leverage kernel development in general.

Some practical examples are shown and there should be a discussion about the future of lua(4).
