Hey fellow lua user!
I use pure lua for games / love framework, so I have only scratched moonscripts, ill take a closer look though!
What are the problems you ran into lua with btw?
Prototypes do fucky things to my headspace.
I'm strongly visual so languages that let me fuck with scopes and 'implement my own OOP' cause me to mentally recurse until I run out of stack and crash.
I like to be able to look at something and know definitively what it does and where it belongs in relation to the rest of the source code, instead of the indirection of having to figure out what the meta table is doing in conjunction with the run time or state of the system (reasoning about the invisible is hard for me).
I like to be able to debug my program, not my understanding of the tools. Like most programmers using garbage collected languages, I like my training wheels and safety helmet while I drool on my self and eat bugs all day.
Jokes aside, it took me *ages* to grok closures, and it always seemed like when I asked I got some high brow fucky answer from some smug university cunt, until about a year ago someone said 'basically they are 1st class scopes'
