Demonstration scripts

The demo directory contains some of the demonstration programs included in the Haru library distribution. These have been closely translated from C to Lua. Each script generates a PDF file with the same name as the script except for the extension which is changed from .lua to .pdf.

On Unix-type systems, execute the following command to generate the PDF files:

make demo

This will build the LuaHPDF binding if necessary, and then invoke Lua to generate each demonstration file. The package.path and package.cpath variables are modified on the command line so that demonstration scripts load hpdf.so and common.lua as modules.

The common.lua script is a helper module that you may wish to install in a standard Lua module directory. Run

lua -e "print(package.path)"

to see where these are.
