General Development "Lua is a powerful, light-weight programming language designed for extending applications. Coupled with it being relatively fast and having a very lenient license, it has gained a following among game developers for providing a viable scripting interface. It has been used in games such as World of Warcraft and Far Cry, and in applications such as Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Snort."

performance oriented in what way compared to lua?

euphoria has two core data types, numbers + vectors, and vectors pale in comparision to luas tables. lua has functions as first class citizens with the full lambda calculus. euphoria is not functional at all.

euphoria is faster but the speed difference is minimal.
