About the "imperativeness", I understand. Lua syntax is indeed a little bit more limited. OTOH, that's expected in a language for embedded environments.
About Lua iterators, yes, the generic 'for' loop allows the underlying function to provide data step-by-step. Lua also implements coroutines, which are the counterpart of Python's generators. For more information, please, check the Lua manual.
