RiscLua has been available for RISC OS since 2002. You can get two versions from my website http://www.wra1th.plus.com/riscos.html :RiscLua 5 for earlier platforms that do not have VFP and RiscLua 7 for those that do. I only have an Rpi3, so I need feeedback on how they perform elsewhere.

There are a few people who use RiscLua. It is as easy to use as BASIC, but different in many fundamental ways, and more powerful. You can make standalone versions of your Lua programs so that they run on machines without a Lua interpreter. If more tutorial material is needed, if things do not work, or you have any complaints please let me know. It has remained stable for decades, with occasional new features, and sometimes temporary experiments, generally following the evolution of Lua. For example in 2003 version 2.32 was implemented as a relocatable module, in 2006 version 3.30 got bitwise operators, in 2008 version 5.00 adopted BASIC-like syntax for calling SWIs, in 2015 version 6 got dynamic linking of C libraries.

If you are interested in programming you have to try RiscLua.smile
