I use this all day. Just set outline-regexp according to your function format.

(add-hook 'lua-mode-hook 'my-lua-config)

(defun my-lua-config ()
 (setq outline-regexp "function"))

I really like this simple approach instead of inserting tags "{{{" and
"}}}" to mark bodies like I've seen some people do...

and then I have global bindings like this:

(global-set-key [M-left] 'hide-body)
(global-set-key [M-right] 'show-all)
(global-set-key [M-up] 'outline-previous-heading)
(global-set-key [M-down] 'outline-next-heading)
(global-set-key [(meta return)] 'outline-toggle-entry)

I wonder if it's something quirky on this Win32 machine. I'm fairly new to Emacs but *really* like out-line minor mode and dynamic auto complete. Saves me a lot of time with a screen reader.
