If you choose the original lua package (and not luajit) then you will also need:

To build the documentation, go in the build directory and type:
>$ make doc
Generated files are available trough a web browser. The LUA API documentation is called
DeveloperGuide.html and the C API documentation is called CoreDeveloperGuide.html. Both

Running MAQAO modules

A MAQAO module can be launched with the following command:
>$ maqao <module> [args]
For instance to list the functions in the binary /path_to/my_binary:
>$ maqao analyze --list-functions /path_to/my_binary

The -h option provides help for a given module.
