Re: fuzzy love

i made a radix sorting algorithm in lua and in Squirrel to see how much faster the Squirrel arrays where than lua and it was by orders of magnitude If performance is the goal, just use LuaJIT. It smokes nearly everything. there are a number of other things like bit-wise operators, increment, deincr...

Re: fuzzy love

Squirrel has arrays, Lua doesn't. Lua has arrays, it just doesn't use a special language construct for them. If you use a table as an array, internally it is an array.

The only change was to drop in my class library (because I didn't feel like debugging the one you had) and fixing the superclass method calls. This got Mr. Squario to ...
