Thanks. The "const" is part of a class definition. I left
that bit out for simplification, but the distinction may be
important. Can I still access the value through _G ?

there are no "consts" in Lua, but you can emulate constants
tables. and you can do something like:
function CompareVar (varname, value)
return _G[varname] == value;
this is identical to simple "varname == value" construction.
