Here is what I get :
-- foo.lua
module("bar", package.seeall)
print("loading ".._NAME.." as "..(...))
-- test.lua --> the output
local tmp = require 'foo' --> loading bar as foo
print(tmp) --> true
print( --> true
print( --> table: 00336EC0

So if you don't get that your installation has a problem. Are you using
Lua 5.0 with compat-5.1 ?

Oh, now we are getting to the heart of the problem. The above is what
I expected and I wasn't getting it. Specifically, I was getting "nil"
instead of "true" at the "print (tmp)" line.

You know what the problem was? I was inputting the lines at the Lua
command prompt and thus "local tmp = ... " was different variable than
the one in "print (tmp)". Oops... Sorry all...
