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

:-) 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!
