I'm new to Lua.
I cannot make your object samples fully run.
Although the first part of the benchmark looks like if it run properly, when
hitting the first timemeth invocation I always get an error:
REGRESSION test starting...
lua eror: call _expression_ not a function
"function `timemeth` [file `object_test.lua`]
main of file `object_test.lua`
I run it under windows2000.
