error: attempt to call global 'loadfile' (a nil value)

Did you have modified Lua sources (.c)?

I don't have the sources here, it's the compiled version in

I had that. I tried several things, most of the time LUA complained
that "dofile" or "require" were
= nil, but when it did not complain, references in the program to
subroutines in ansi.lua were nil

I have finally copied ansi.lua into the top of my program.

is there somthing special I have to do in a "dofile" file?  have no
global stuff and only functions
in there?

ansi.lua is in the same directory as the file I am working on.

if that's your current directory then you can just do:

dofile "ansi.lua"
