As rborges' much-referred "loadlib" didn't work with Lua 4.0 I decided to write my own... I have added the following files to the Debian source package (that already had Reuben Thomas' regexps+bitops patch, and minimal debianization stuff): README.loadlib this file src/lib/lloadlib.c the "loadlib" function for Lua loadlib.patch the patch that makes lualib include lloadlib.c The patch "loadlib.patch" is not applied by default because 1) the code is just a quick hack, and 2) it makes people have to add "-ldl" to their options to the linker when they link against lualib, and so it would make some scripts break. A minimal example of how to build a .deb of Lua applying the loadlib patch can be found at: (find-es "lua" "fetching_the_debs") (find-es "lua" "lua-4.0_debs") Eduardo Ochs <http://angg.twu.net/>, 2001feb25; public domain.
