Key differences between Ada and Lua

SyntaxAda has a syntax that is similar to Pascal and is known for its strong typing and readability.Lua has a simple and flexible syntax that is easy to learn and use.
ParadigmAda supports multiple paradigms including procedural, object-oriented, and concurrent programming.Lua is primarily a procedural language but also supports some object-oriented features.
TypingAda has strong static typing, which means that variable types are checked at compile-time.Lua has dynamic typing, which means that variable types are determined at runtime.
PerformanceAda is known for its high performance and efficiency, making it suitable for resource-constrained systems.Lua is designed for simplicity and ease of use, sacrificing some performance for flexibility.
Libraries and frameworksAda has a wide range of libraries and frameworks available, particularly for safety-critical and embedded systems.Lua has a smaller but growing ecosystem of libraries and frameworks, with a focus on game development and scripting.
Community and supportAda has a smaller but dedicated community with strong support from organizations such as AdaCore.Lua has a large and active community with support from the Lua community and various online resources.
Learning curveAda has a steeper learning curve due to its strong typing and complex syntax, but it offers powerful features for software development.Lua has a relatively low learning curve, making it easy for beginners to get started with programming.
