What does this extension do?

The wiremod Lua extension Laser is designed to be used with Wire Expression2 in mind and implements general functions for retrieving various values form a dominant source entity or database entries. Beware of the E2 performance though. You can create feedback loops for controlling source beam parameters.

What is the wiremod Laser API then?
