I was just wondering, I downloaded the newest source files, compiled them and ended up with a .dll file and the compiler and intepreter .exe files.
But don't I also need a .lib file to link with my program? (as right now I'm getting linking errors when compiling example files).
If so, how do I obtain this .lib file from the source? I am using Visual studio 2012 (btw I know I could just download the binaries).
Second, I was wondering why people use the LuaBind or other wrappers, the buildin C API seems quite easy to use, what are the advantages of using these third party wrappers? Wouldn't it give trouble with newer versions of Lua? (having to wait til these wrappers update as well).
