I meant lua_dostring, not dostring.  lua_dostring() returns 0 in case of
and an error code otherwise.

I guess what I said was unclear.  I did not necessarily mean that
dostring does not take arguments or have a return value.  I just meant
that for _routines_ that took no arguments and return no values, dostring
is a good choice.
