The approach is different. lua_pcall() allows you to set up an
error printing routine that is called before the stack is unwound.
lua_resume() does not unwind the stack on error (but declares
the coroutine 'dead').
So you can just inspect the stack after lua_resume() returns
with an error and print a traceback. Have a look at what
debug.traceback() does (db_errorfb in ldblib.c) or just call it
from C or Lua.
However ... this feature requires Lua 5.1-work2 or above.
See this message for an announcement and an example:
(but don't download work2, we are at work6 now)
BTW: I'm not sure who is in charge of the mailing list archive,
but the index seems to be broken. Enter 'Lua 5.1 work 2'
(without the quotes) as a search string and look at the
top message found. The results list shows a completely
unrelated message, but the link points to the correct one.
Strange. Same thing happens with other searches, too.
