In the previous chapter, you learned the reasons behind Lua and that Lua is, after all, made up of C code libraries. One of the advantages that the developers of Lua got from this architecture for Lua was that they could add functionality as required. Adding functionality involved writing new functions and making them available in Lua. It is quite a surprise that Lua does not have multiple distributions and remains as intended by the developers; there are not many modified versions. However, many developmental studios do modify, or rather adapt and customize, Lua for their own editors and tools.
