The PiL book has some guidlines for writing Lua modules but it doesn't
say anything about "C style".  It just gives a description of what a
module should and shouldn't do.  If you want you module to be ultra
portable, make it ANSI C compatible.

There aren't any because there is no standard
repository/collection/library of Lua modules.

That said, the Lua libraries (io, math, string, table, etc) are
written in a typical, elegant style and also provide a model for how
to write Lua modules.  These are the files listed under "Libraries" at
