    Books on LUA

    I've spotted some books on LUA that are now on my wishlist.
    Has anyone seen / read / got these?
    If so, are they any good? How relevant are they going to be for Fantasy Grounds?

    Thanks, I'd found the reference manual online. But didn't know about the first edition of the book online. I'll have a look and then get from Amazon if it looks useful. I'm afraid I'm one of these people that prefer reference material in dead tree format.

    There is also a book called "Game development with Lua" by Paul Schuytema and Mark Manyen.
    I am not sure how good it is but I am checking it out from the local library to see if it is any good. The local books stores do not have it.

    the ISBN # 1584504048
