Hi all,

I have installed Lua 5.0 on my small Linux system. The core stuff works fine. I am now trying to use the "luafilesystem" package from the Kepler project. I have compiled it and placed it on my system without problems. When I run the test program that comes with lfs I get the following error:

/bin/lua: /usr/local/lib/lua/compat-5.1.lua:113: error loading module `lfs' (/usr/local/lib/ invalid control char near `char(127)')
stack traceback:
       [C]: in function `error'
       /usr/local/lib/lua/compat-5.1.lua:113: in function `loader'
/usr/local/lib/lua/compat-5.1.lua:189: in function </usr/local/lib/lua/compat-5.1.lua:185>
       /usr/local/lib/lua/compat-5.1.lua:213: in function `require'
       /tmp/test.lua:7: in main chunk
       [C]: ?

I've had a look at the archives and have seen something about null characters not being permitted in files but that was for lua v4.....

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance
