Key differences between Fsharp and Lua

SyntaxF# has a syntax that is similar to other functional programming languages, with a focus on immutability and pattern matching.Lua has a simple and lightweight syntax, with a focus on simplicity and ease of use.
ParadigmF# is a multi-paradigm language that supports functional, imperative, and object-oriented programming.Lua is primarily a procedural language, but it also supports some features of functional programming.
TypingF# is a statically typed language with type inference, which allows for strong type checking and compile-time type safety.Lua is a dynamically typed language, which means that variables do not have predefined types and type checking is done at runtime.
PerformanceF# is known for its performance and can be used for high-performance computing tasks.Lua is designed to be lightweight and fast, but it may not be as performant as some other languages for certain tasks.
Libraries and frameworksF# has a growing ecosystem of libraries and frameworks, with good support for web development, data science, and more.Lua has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to some other languages, but it is often used as an embedded scripting language in larger projects.
Community and supportF# has an active and supportive community, with resources and forums available for learning and getting help.Lua also has a supportive community, with resources and forums available, although it may not be as large as some other language communities.
Learning curveF# has a moderate learning curve, especially for developers who are already familiar with functional programming concepts.Lua has a relatively low learning curve, with a simple syntax and easy-to-understand concepts.
