The program that I have written uses a custom file format based on XML.  Everything that the program needs is in this file including my Lua script.  Because the file isn’t totally a Lua script, I load the script using the function luaL_loadbuffer.  I do not want this implementation detail to be shown to the user, but when an error occurs the error is something like what is shown below.  I do not want the first 16 characters.  I know I can remove that portion before I present it to the user, but I was wondering if this is the preferred approach for this problem.  I want to make sure I’m using the correct function.
