comment What is the purpose of a Code Review
@gnat It emphasizes a different aspect of the points raised in other answers. Have you ever been puzzled by your own code that you wrote six months ago? Code review lets you accelerate that process. If your colleague is puzzled by your code, you can still clarify it while the problem is still fresh in your memory.

comment Creating New Scripts Dynamically in Lua
The question of readability may be premature, as you have placeholder names everywhere — which also makes this question off-topic for Code Review. You have asked a very interesting question, though, so I'm migrating it to Programmers.

comment Nested maps vs. combined keys
This is more of a design question, and there is insufficient code for Code Review.

comment PHP Cache Strategy - Genius or Sheer Stupidity?
As it sounds like you are looking for more of a design review than a code review, this question belongs on Programmers.

comment Pointer indexing
Others have pointed out that it's undefined behaviour, so you shouldn't say that it's "allowed". However, the suggestion to allocate an extra unused element 0 is good.

comment How bad is it calling println() often than concatenating strings together and calling it once?
Java also does compile-time concatenation. For example, "2^31 - 1 = " + Integer.MAX_VALUE is stored as a single interned string (JLS Sec 3.10.5 and 15.28)‌​.
