It sure does. I have Lua running on my LC III with no changes.

Not true. The compiler is looking for "\n". It's the job of the C library
to translate incoming end-of-lines to "\n". That's what ANSI C says.

Perhaps you're using a file created on a different system and not translated
as a text file during transfer.
