Hi,

How will mruby compare to lua?

I could use mruby similar to lua, is that one of the main ideas behind
mruby?

And I assume that folks who know C will significantly profit from mruby
more so than "normal" ruby users who know only ruby?

Hi,

Basic aim of mruby is similar to Lua.  The biggest differences are:

* some prefer Ruby to Lua
* mruby comes with standard compiled libraries written in Ruby
* mruby has API that does not need to tweek VM stack directly
* Lua is smaller, and LuaJIT is faster

              matz.
