IntroductionLua Checker is a program that analyzes Lua source for common programming errors, much as the "lint" program does for C. The following problems are currently identified:
Use of variables that have not been declared. Multiple declarations of variables. Attempting to change the value of constant variables. Other things are planned, see the 'future' section below.
Lua Checker was developed within the Street View team at Google to validate Lua scripts. Russ Smith is the primary author. Lua Checker is licensed under the standard Lua 5.0 license (an MIT-style license).
Lua Checker contains a bison compatible LALR(1) parser for the Lua language (see lua.y) which may be useful to Lua developers in its own right.
