- Subject: Redirecting output to non-files?

It looks as though Lua's io package is hardwired to use the ANSI
stdio library. The reference manual says "a file handle is a
userdata containing the file stream (FILE*)..." [5.6] There doesn't
seem to be a way to 'subclass' file handles the way I could e.g.
What I want to do is redirect Lua output to my own function, so that
calls to print(), io.write(), io.output():write(), etc. all call my
function so it can collect the output and do something with it.
(Apologies if I'm missing something obvious; I've used a lot of
languages but I'm a newbie at Lua.)
