Hello all,
I want to use Lua to preserve the state of my programme - much like saves of a game.
The general structure of a file is something like

node1 = {
  value1 = "blah"
  value2 = "blah"
node2 = ...

I know how to read the file and get the values from Lua machine.
At some time I want to change some of the values and write back the file.
What I don't know is how to make Lua to generate such a file.
Or should I generate it by hand?

Also, what is the situation with IUP and Lua5.1? Are they usable together?
I'm targeting Windows 2000 and up.

Thanks for your kind suggestions,
