Create my own LUA compiler


Recommended Posts

Lua does not compile to assembly (Except JIT), and knowing assembly is not a requirement.

You will have to study about compilers, which includes lexers, parsers, grammars, ASTs etc.

The answers here will be very helpful to you: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1669/learning-to-write-a-compiler

Lua's syntax in extended BNF is given here: http://www.lua.org/manual/5.1/manual.html#8 (Last section on the page)
