> HI. I'm unable to run Lua 5.2 on Eclipse 2020-12 on Windows 10.
I doubt this is really a problem with core Lua, it is more likely a
problem with Eclipse or your configuration. I am not a user of Eclipse
so I do not think I could give you any specific advice.
In general I suppose Eclipse's debugger might offer two modes: run
code in a "built-in" Lua environment or attach to an external Lua
host. I would expect the second option to require more configuration
for both Eclipse and the external host, so if you are new to Lua,
using the built-in debugger might be an easier way to get things
Another thing of note is that you are using Lua 5.2. It is possible
that this is either too old or too new for your Eclipse tooling.
In general I would first try running those "trivial" files in a clean
installation of Eclipse with built-in Lua support that is known to
I hope somebody more knowledgeable about Eclipse could chime in.
