We mac people sometimes have the short end of the stick (not intending to
start a flame war! :)
I've discovered that short comments in lua, ala:
-- this is a comment
...don't work properly on the mac.
That's because the compiler is looking for a new line by searching for
"\r\n". Whereas on the mac, a new line is simply "\r".
So lua like this:
-- comment here
...outputs nothing since in the compiler's pov there is no new line and so
the *entire* script is effectively commented out!
Surely, this has been encountered before on this list; so I thought I'd ask
if there is any facility within lua to address this.
Yes, I know I *could* manipulate the text myself, prior to compilation, but
I'd prefer a more elegant solution. Especially since our app is cross
platform and we'd like to interchange scripts seamlessly. And on the mac a
"\r\n" shows up as a new line followed by a box (unprintable character)...
Anyone solve this before?
