lua-platform – Load platform-specific code into Lua

While plat­form-spe­cific prob­lems can of­ten be han­dled purely in Lua, it some­times hap­pens that ac­cess to the na­tive op­er­at­ing sys­tem API is re­quired. For such tasks, Lua it­self makes it pos­si­ble to load ex­ten­sion mod­ules writ­ten in C (or other lan­guages pro­vided that they can pro­duce a dy­namic li­brary that ex­ports a cer­tain C-style func­tion).

The present pack­age aims to pro­vide such an ex­ten­sion mod­ule that is us­able from both Lua and Lua and adds a small set of fea­tures not avail­able oth­er­wise. This re­lease merely sup­ports list­ing the fonts known to the op­er­at­ing sys­tem (this fea­ture could use­fully be in­te­grated into the lu­aot­fload pack­age).
