       lua - Lua interpreter


       likwid-lua [ options ] [ script [ args ] ]


       likwid-lua  is the standalone Lua interpreter.  It loads and executes Lua programs, either
       in textual source form or in precompiled binary form.  (Precompiled binaries are output by
       luac,  the  Lua  compiler.)   likwid-lua  can  be  used  as  a  batch interpreter and also

       The given options are handled in order and then the Lua program in file script  is  loaded
       and  executed.   The given args are available to script as strings in a global table named
       arg.  If no options or arguments are given, then -v -i is assumed when the standard  input
       is a terminal; otherwise, - is assumed.

       In interactive mode, likwid-lua prompts the user, reads lines from the standard input, and
       executes them as  they  are  read.   If  the  line  contains  an  expression  or  list  of
       expressions,  then  the line is evaluated and the results are printed.  If a line does not
       contain a complete statement, then a secondary prompt is  displayed  and  lines  are  read
       until a complete statement is formed or a syntax error is found.

       At  the  very start, before even handling the command line, likwid-lua checks the contents
       of the environment variables LUA_INIT_5_3 or LUA_INIT, in that order.  If the contents  is
       of  the  form '@filename', then filename is executed.  Otherwise, the string is assumed to
       be a Lua statement and is executed.


       -e stat
              execute statement stat.

       -i     enter interactive mode after executing script.

       -l name
              execute the equivalent of name=require('name') before executing script.

       -v     show version information.

       -E     ignore environment variables.

       --     stop handling options.

       -      stop handling options and execute the standard input as a file.
