 			<p>Lua is one of the simplest languages available, but Luan is even simpler.  This means Luan removes more than it adds.  Most of what is added is added in the library, not in the language itself.</p>
 			<p>Luan is implemented in Java and is tightly integrated with Java.  This makes it an excellent scripting language for Java.</p>

 			<p>Luan has an <tt>_ENV</tt> which is like its Lua equivalent.  However Luan has no global environment at all, no <tt>_G</tt>.</p>
 			<p>Every module is initialized with two local functions: <tt>require</tt> and <tt>java</tt>.  The module then uses these functions to get access to whatever else it needs.</p>

 			<p>Luan does not have coroutines.  Coroutines is a complex concept that isn't needed in a simple language, so it was left out.</p>

 			<p>Unlike Lua, Luan generally considers the end of a line to be the end of a statement.  This catches errors and encourages readability.  The exception to this is in paranthesis ( <i>(...)</i>, <i>[...]</i>, and <i>{...}</i> ) where the end of line is treated as white space.</p>
 			<p>Luan has exactly the same set of keywords as Lua and has the same other lexical conventions.</p>

 			<p>The Luan <b>if</b>, <b>while</b>, and <b>repeat</b> statement are the same as in Lua except that the condition expression must return a boolean value.  Any other value type will produce an error.  This helps catch errors and makes code more readable.</p>
