luajit: A Just-In-Time Compiler for the Lua programming language1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0]

LuaJIT is based on the Lua 5.1.x virtual machine and bytecode interpreter from It compiles bytecode to native x86 (i386+) machine code to speed up the execution of Lua programs.

LuaJIT depends on Coco to allow yielding from coroutines for JIT compiled functions. Coco is part of the LuaJIT distribution.
