Absolutely true! But the trouble here is that it's eating the dogfood
fine here, except for one crucial point...

I tried quickluatour.lua using 'Run Program' (F5), cool. Using the
debugger (Alt+R), also cool. Except for the gui example, which appears
to hang. The trouble is that the GUI window is invisible, and the
solution is that GUI apps _have_ to run as .wlua scripts.  This is a
limitation of the default SciTE program mode, which is designed for
console applications.  I'll have a look to see if this behaviour can
be modified. Generally you want to hide the console, but not the
window ;)

But I'm not seeing any weird character stuff in the output pane, that
is puzzling...

Quickluatour.lua etc works fine if you double-click on the icon.

Anyway, thanks for the feedback. Only way things improve!
