By "structured" I mean the use of control structures (if-then/while/for loops) and subroutines rather than GOTO statements as in BASIC.

The Lua flavor used by sis is 5.2, but the parser is pretty heavily modded. For learning basic Lua concepts and patterns, the standard reference book would be the third edition of Programming in Lua.


That book is less expensive than I would have expected at $8 USD. I ordered a copy from Amazon, we'll see if I actually get around to figuring Lua out.
