Hello everyone, I am using lua 5.1 on my mac os 10.4.5
For some strange reason, this simple program does nothing...meaning, it
outputs nothing.

I have also tried using luaL_loadfile where I simply have

print "hello world";

in a file and nothing prints. So I guess my question is what do I need
to do to create a proper lua state, load a script, and call a function
within the script in lua 5.1, since all examples are old.

luaL_loadfile and luaL_loadstring only do that: load the Lua code. you still have to execute it.

add lua_call after loading

Thank you very much, that did the trick. I discovered this on my own before reading your post. Thank you so much anyway.
