Please note that most developers prefer to only bind to the few library
calls they actually need. E.g. an
rmdir() binding is just a single line
with the LuaJIT FFI. And a simple binding to e.g.
zlib takes only two
dozen lines, see the FFI Tutorial.
You can find many examples for this floating around on the net.
