To execute a Lua file in Cmder, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Install Lua: If you haven't already, you'll need to install Lua on your machine. You can download the Lua interpreter from the official Lua website ( and follow the installation instructions for your operating system.

  2. Open Cmder: Launch the Cmder application on your computer. Cmder is a command prompt emulator for Windows that provides an enhanced command line experience.

  3. Navigate to the Lua file: Use the cd command to navigate to the directory where your Lua file is located. For example, if your Lua file is in the "Documents" folder, you can use the following command: cd C:\Users\YourUsername\Documents.

  4. Run the Lua file: Once you're in the correct directory, you can run the Lua file by typing lua followed by the name of your Lua file. For example, if your Lua file is named "script.lua", you can run it with the following command: lua script.lua.

  5. Observe the output: The Lua script will be executed by the Lua interpreter, and any output or errors will be displayed in the Cmder window. If your Lua script produces any output, you will see it printed in the console.

That's it! You have successfully executed a Lua file in Cmder. If you encounter any issues or errors, double-check that you have Lua installed correctly and that you are running the Lua file from the correct directory.
