LuaJIT is based on the Lua 5.1.x virtual machine and bytecode interpreter from lua.org. It compiles bytecode to native x86 (i386+) machine code to speed up the execution of Lua programs.
An innovative trace compiler is integrated with advanced, SSA-based optimizations and a highly tuned code generation backend. This allows a substantial reduction of the overhead associated with dynamic language features. It's destined to break into the performance range traditionally reserved for offline, static language compilers.
