Yes, lua.h is just in /usr/local/include/lua/, but somehow gcc could not
locate it.
I hope I will have time to debug and get this working by today.

Thank you very much for your feedback. To me it seems like this project
is not as hard as other projects or projects from other organizations.

It would be great if I could get some feedback from other people, especially
if anyone in Australia who has successfully completed GSoC with Purr Data

Yes, it would be great if you could please provide me with more feedback.
Another question that I have is to what scale of this fake news library you
are expecting?
(e.g. how many objects?)

Kind regards,
