What is a LUA file?
A LUA file is a source code file written in Lua, a light-weight programming language designed for extending applications. It can be compiled into a program using an ANSI C compiler.
LUA files may be used to customize certain applications, such as the World of Warcraft and Dawn of War video games. Also, the Angry Birds Mac OS program (now discontinued) uses LUA files for game levels. However, these files are compiled LUA files and are not saved in plain text. Adobe uses Lua for programming the Lightroom user interface.
NOTE: "Lua" comes from the Portuguese word for moon.
