Cool stuffs (even though I knew it all ;)), but this link
is dead.
GitHub's current page system requires you to create a new project then create a branch named "gh-pages"-- I recommend setting this as the default branch-- , and finally then add an "index.html" file.

No, the creator deleted their site. You can browse the old code here though (or through the wayback machine)

i thought i might point out with fs api,
try doing this
f = fs.open("file","w")
f.writeLine [[
--comment :P/>/>
function()
random lines n' stuff
lots of lines, so much lols!
]]
f.close()
and that writes to a file

I don't really see what you're trying to point out here. Could you elaborate more?

what i'm saying is, when you pointed out the multi-line print,
print [[
this prints multi line stuff
this is a second line
]]
i noticed it also works with fs.writeLine()
fs.writeLine [[
this is line 1
this is line 2
]]

That's because it's simply a Lua's multiline string. It will work with anything that requires strings, because a multiline string is exactly the same as a non-multiline string. The only difference is that you can embed special characters into a multiline string without escaping them, such as newline characters.
