I think in Lua 4.x, lua_open() took an arguement specifying the stack size. Maybe he is using example code or documentation from Lua 4.x.

what makes you think lua_open() should have an argument?

I really cannot get my Lua up and running.
Using Dev-C++ (MinGW) with the prepared devpacks of Lua 5.0 and a standard
ANSI C file (have also LuaPlus, but even more errors).

#include <stdio.h>
#include <lua.h>

int main(int argc, char* argv[ ])
   lua_State* luaVM = lua_open(0);

   if (NULL == luaVM)
      printf("Error Initializing lua\n");
      return -1;

   // Do stuff with lua code.

   lua_close( luaVM );

   return 0;

I get the error: too many arguments in function 'lua open'

Can anyone help me getting this up and running or supply me with a simple
hello world program.

Thanks in advance,
