Thanks!  Actually Winzip should unzip gzipped files, but I'll try your new 
versions anyway.

:-)  Actually, when I said it worked fine, I meant it unzipped fine.  I
put any ldb into my code yet.

Incidently, the filename ldblib.c conflicts with the ldblib.c file that
with the lua 3.2 distribution.  I changed the name to ldb.c (and ldb.h for
consistency) and everything compiles fine.

I'm interested in ldb because it has "break" and "stop/continue", something 
which I want to explore for my application both for debugging and to pause 
lua scripts during normal execution.  Lua's debug API doesn't seem to 
have a break or stop/continue.  Is there a simple way to implement this?

Thanks for your help!
