I downloaded the IUP binary release for 
windows and the examples from the sourceforge site.

I set my path correctly and tried running the:


but it gave some errors (the naming of the requires should 
be altered from "iuplua" to "iuplua51" and so on to comply 
with the *.dll naming in the lib path variable. I know I 
can put the naming convention in the LUA_CPATH) then in 
line 7 it gives an error:

error loading module "iupgl" from file "iupgl.dll"

If I leave it like require("gl") it gives 
a typical "can't find the .dll or .lua in the 
specified paths." error message

How can I make it happen?

Best regards,...
