Thanks for the post.  I did have a look at them and the problem is I'm
still at the I-use-Lua-but-I-don't-quite-get-how-it-works-stage :-)  So
let me start with a simpler question.  I want to catch lua source errors
so I think I need to use lua_pcall instead of lua_call.  lua_pcall takes
a stack index for an error handler function.  On startup I registered an
error handler function, so I'm gueesing I need to pass the index of that
function to lua_pcall?  How do I get the index?  I can use
lua_pushstring of the function name and then lua_gettable to retrieve a
function, then push parameters and call it, but how do I get the index
of the function so I can pass it to lua_pcall?
