In one of my Lua programs (called scandir because it scans the directory for
filenames which match the required criteria), the script invokes other
scripts with varying parms. You should be warned that this might not be a
very good way, but it works for me. Specifically, there are four versions of
"parse", namely parsePNL, parsePRE, parseFIX, and parseGPR. "dname" will
contain the appropriate suffix.

Finally, this is WinXP based, hence the "\\" instead of "\".

FYI, "table" contains the list of file names.

-- other Lua code
    local pgm = "c:\\lua\\source\\parse" .. dname .. ".lua" 
    print("Scandir will invoke PGM = ", pgm)    
    for i = 1, #table do
          arg[1] = dir .. "\\" ..  table[i]
          print("ScanDir processed file ==> ", dir .. "\\" .. table[i])
