I have been using Lua as a scripting language for RISC OS for quite a few years now - one version as a relocatable module, though that was trickier for error-handling. But seriously, Lua is dead easy to integrate into anything written in C or assembler, is tiny, and a lot easier to learn than Perl or, dare I say it, Basic. The shortcomings of Obey file syntax and semantics have been obvious from the days of Arthur.
