The Lua core *never* outputs anything, not even error messages. That was an
important change introduced in Lua 5.0.

This only applies to lua.c: in interactive mode, values listed in a line
beginnning with "=" are printed (with "print"). This is for convenience only.

If a line starts with `=', then lua displays the values of all the
expressions in the remainder of the line. The expressions must be
separated by commas.
