LuaJIT is a just-in-time compiler for the Lua programming language, making it faster than traditional interpreters. It is designed to support the Lua 5.1 programming language syntax and semantics. The "jit" in LuaJIT stands for Just-In-Time, referring to its ability to dynamically compile Lua code at runtime. It is implemented as a command line tool, allowing users to execute Lua scripts or run interactive sessions. LuaJIT generally offers a significant performance boost over standard Lua interpreters and is known to be one of the fastest dynamic language implementations available. It achieves this by using a combination of modern just-in-time compilation techniques, specialized data representation, and efficient memory management. LuaJIT aims to provide developers with a seamless transition from using traditional Lua interpreters, as most Lua code can be executed unmodified with LuaJIT. It supports various operating systems, including Windows, macOS, Linux, BSD, and iOS. LuaJIT is an actively developed project and is considered a valuable tool for Lua programmers who require improved execution speed for their applications.
