Well, few hours ago I started with Lua. So to get up to speed, I got various kits, lua 4.0 and 5.0, installed, Reference Guide and also I did browse quite a lot of site. To start with something, I wnet to the page, download the lua_00.lua script and tried to run it with Lua.exe under Windows 2000. Here is what I got:

I:\LUA\LUA-5.0>lua -v ..\examples\lua_00.lua
Lua 5.0  Copyright (C) 1994-2003 Tecgraf, PUC-Rio

Lua_00 - lists the given command line arguments

LUA: ..\examples\lua_00.lua:32: attempt to call global `getargs' (a nil value)
stack traceback:
       ..\examples\lua_00.lua:32: in main chunk
       [C]: ?


I tried to look in this list archive, search on the web, but unfortunately found nothing that would help me. Is the getargs function built into Lua or is it an external function and I'm missing a dll, a path or something like that ?

Content of the Lua 5.0 directory is:
