Lua indeed should do so and I was surpised that it doesn't set fill arg
with the parameters. What I do now is create a new environment for loaded
files (luaL_loadfile), set CURRENT_FILE in this environment to the file
name and put a wrapper around the function that sets arg in the environment
with the parameters this function receives. I also use 'include' exported
by my C code instead of dofile or require. It's an ugly kludge, but does
One problem with the current file path stuff is that it is OS-specific.
(Although I am only aware of only one current OS that uses a non-standard,
i.e. non-POSIX, directory separator, I'm sure there are more.)
