Adding LuaJIT (Lua VM)


#1

Hi,

Having Lua is already amazing, but is it possible to add LuaJIT, a VM implementation of Lua 5.1, as a “language” or another VM ?

I’m starting to be stuck on puzzles because of the limits of PUC Lua 5.3 in term of optimizations. LuaJIT is one of the best VMs (interpreter & JIT compiler) for a dynamic language, being able to use it would be awesome.

Edit: I had a false positive with a bad solution, it’s probably not an issue to pass puzzles if they are tuned to be solved in a time margin enough for slower stuff.

Solo puzzles use a different time limit depending of the language. So the limit for Lua should be high enough. Probaly the algorithm you use is not fast enough.

Solo puzzles use a different time limit depending of the language.

I was thinking about that possibility, thanks for the hint.
