Lua Tool

Trango Interactive is beta testing a new tool for Lua and Visual Studio. It provides syntax highlighting, Intellisense and most importantly debugging of Lua scripts. Using the VS.Net debugger on lua scripts is a dream come true for many Lua developers.

The product is clearly still in beta and has some major problems. The biggest problem is the lack of support for custom versions of Lua. I am told that they are working on this support. Without the ability to use a custom Lua DLL, the debugging feature has very little real world appilcation.

Once they get the bugs orked out, it will be a very good addition to any Lua developer's bag-o-tricks.
