The Lua code is "C++ clean" it will build with an ansi C or
The Lua distribution does not use premake, it is the
distribution of premake, which includes the Lua
source, that uses premake.
I am not sure if I made that clearer or not - think catch-22.
If there are any readers of this list that are new to C
programming and haven't picked their personal style
yet; read the Lua source code - C can be beautiful.
