Simply extract the package in the directory of your choice. No installation process needed and no file introduced into your system directories.
To be able to use all functionnalities it is strongly recommanded to install Lua AIO distribution into the directory "/usr/share/luaaio" and to create a symbolic link for the executable into the directory "/usr/bin" (ie. ln -s /usr/share/luaaio/lua /usr/bin/lua). The distribution contains a simple lua script editor defined into the script file "lua.lua". Nevertheless this file can be removed, modified or changed to anything else..
With the xterm, it is possible to :
- test some lua code into the test console (-t)
- compile some lua files with the lua compiler (-c <file.lua>)
- execute some specific lua files (<file.lua>)
It has been noticed that some linux distributions use different standard c++ librairies. In case, the following error message "error while loading shared libraries : libstdc++.so.5" occurs, you should use the linux distribution with libstdc++6, also named "luaaio_x.y_linux_6.tgz". In other cases, the linux distribution with libstdc++5 will work, named "luaaio_x.y_linux_5.tgz". An other possibility is to install the missing c++ librairies.
In the following screenshot, we install the "libstdc++5" library to be able to use the linux distribution "luaaio_x.y_linux_5.tgz".
