script type
This a Vim help file containing references for Lua 5.0 and 5.1, and it is -- with a few exceptions and adaptations -- a copy of the Lua 5.0 and Lua 5.1 reference manuals. Lua is a lightweight script language; see http://www.lua.org .

Similarly to CRefVim (from where a lot of ideas were drawn), you can easily search for references for words under the cursor, visually selected words, and manual contents.
install details
This reference consists of three files: the manual itself, lua50refvim.txt for Lua version 5.0 and lua51refvim.txt for Lua version 5.1, a plugin file, luarefvim.vim, to load key bindings, and a help file syntax extension, help.vim. To install luarefvim, copy the manual for the version you want, the plugin and the help files to their respective locations: lua5Xrefvim.txt to $VIMUSERHOME/doc, luarefvim.vim to $VIMUSERHOME/plugin, and help.vim to $VIMUSERHOME/after/syntax, where $VIMUSERHOME is $HOME/.vim on Un*x systems or $HOME/vimfiles on Win32.

Finally, to generate the tags, change dir to $VIMUSERHOME/doc, start Vim, and issue ':helptags .' . For more information on installing help files, call ':help add-local-help'.
