Solutions a) if you know the name of a loaded DLL (e.g. x.dll) you can get
its handle with GetModuleHandle() b) if you have its handle you can get
its fullpath with GetModulefileName()
The package metatable keeps list of the module handles in the
The problem with storing load paths is that they need to be absolute.
THis can be done on Windows and on *nix. 
If you place your Lua  code in a directory relative to the DLL, knowing
where your Lua source is present no problem (in w6).
