Oops, sorry! its enclosed in a conditional:

extern const char *const luaP_opnames[];  /* opcode names */

but my definition isn't (I removed it, my fault).

LUA_OPNAMES seems only to be defined in 


BTW: I think a separate header file would be 
better: you have a global header whose interface
depends on a local variable. C might understand
that but it makes the code fragile and hard
to analyse with other tools.

I have a C wrapper generator, and all hell breaks
loose when this technique is used... GNU uses
it in the standard headers  ...
it took over a week to unravel it :(
