NAME         top

       rpmlua - RPM Lua interpreter

SYNOPSIS         top

       rpmlua [{-e|--execute} “STATEMENT”] [{-i|--interactive}]
       [SCRIPT_FILE] [arg1 ...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Run RPM internal Lua interpreter.

       Note: indexes start at 1 in Lua, so the program name is at arg[1]
       instead of the more customary index zero.

              Run an interactive session after executing optional script
              or statement.

              Perform getopt(3) option processing on the passed
              arguments according to OPTSTRING.

              Execute a Lua statement before executing optional script.

EXAMPLES         top

       Execute test.lua script file:

              rpmlua test.lua

       Execute args.lua script file with option processing:

              rpmlua –opts=ab:c args.lua – 1 2 3 -c -b5

       Execute single statement to compare rpm versions:

              rpmlua -e “print(rpm.ver(`1.0') < rpm.ver(`2.0'))”

       Run an interactive session:

              rpmlua -i
