Dear Group,
I have already spent 2 days trying to figure this out, but to no avail. The problem is
I have a lot of c-functions pushed onto the Lua global environment using
lua_pushcfunction(L, funcname);
lua_setglobal(L, "funcname");
I had a few scripts that used the Windows threading API with lua threads.
Initially when only a few c-functions were pushed on the stack, it worked really well, the lua_newthread function did pass all the globals to the child thread.
But, now that I added a lot of global variables, it appears that the globals are not passed on to the new thread.
This results in an error attempt calling a nil value etc.
The way I figured this is by outputting all the globals using the following
within the thread function
       for n in pairs(_G) do print(n) end
could there be a bug with Lua, that it works with less number of c-functions pushed but stops with more number of functions?
I would greatly appreciate it if some body writes back with some information on this problem, if any one else has faced a similar situation etc.
