    Hi, I'm asking Optim development if they have other documentation.

    In general, there is documentation about Lua for Optim Distributed, including more sample programs, but I don't think there is a lot more. Also there is separate documentation about Lua (not Optim Lua). This is generally available with a Google search, since Lua is an open source language.

    z/OS Optim

    My Developper customers consume a lot a valuable time with the writing and debug of LUA procedure.

    The only documentation is the samples in SFOPSAMP(FOPLUA*)

    Please, help us LUA Red books [for dummies?]
