An Intro To LuaTeX Part 2 Have you ever wondered about LuaTeX or wanted to learn more about it? We previously shared the first part of an informative article titled An Introduction to LuaTeX (Part 1) : What is it - and what makes it so different? In this article we reviewed LuaTeX as an extremely versatile TeX engine: a sophisticated, programmable, typesetting system which provides a wide range of tools for constructing document engineering and production solutions. We are now happy to release the concluding installment, where we take a close look at the most vital component of the LuaTeX toolbox: the \directlua command. This command provides the gateway to programmatic control of LuaTeX's typesetting through the Lua scripting language.
