    I want to know how to do ssh with lua to a remote server and run tcpdump command process in background on remote server.

    More Lua features: full lexical closures, co-routines, and multiple return values. There are only 8 data types: nil, Number, String, Boolean, Table, Userdata, Function, and Thread. Any type can be assigned to a variable, and all types are first-class.

    All structured data is made from Tables (associative arrays). Data types and instances of Table/Userdata can have “meta-Tables” that provide powerful extensibility (including object-oriented structure & behavior). Has a very nice C API which helps make it both embeddable and extensible. Nearly a linguistically/semantically perfect language…

    I use devilspie2 to embed various things like terminals, browsers, or media players into my desktop, and devilspie uses Lua for configuration. Straight forward and great documentation.
