hi ppl,
first of all sorry for the late reply but i was caught up in work ...... thanks for the help ..... but i am still learning Lua and hence i didn't completely understand your replies.
i will try to explain what i am doing in my program.
first i open a single lua state, which is used throughout the program,  using:

m_pLUAState = lua_open();

then i initialize other things needed and register with Lua the C++ functions that i want to export to my scripts:

lua_register(LUAPtr, FuncNAme, FuncPtr);

then i simply call a script file, which is a simple local text file, using:

lua_dofile(m_pLUAState, Filename );

now what i think happens is that each time lua_dofile is called internally lua opens the file, loads it, parses it etc etc. and then closes it upon returning.

the question that i had (if the assumption above is correct, plz verify this) is since lua already opened and loaded a file once it should not do this again if the same script was called.

is there a way to manage this in a simple and efficient manner? or prefably if lua could do this on its own end.

thanks in advance,


P.S. comments wuold be really helpful if you suggest some code.
