The method call of 'cmd' on 'class' works, but I cannot seem to get args to be
passed in. The following code looks similar to the lua method:
	function class:cmd(args)
		print("type " .. type(args)) -- prints 'type nil'
Does anyone know what I'm missing in order to get a string passed into

Matthew, you must push the object itself - the implicit 'self' argument - on the stack before the args string. That is, switch the order of the 'class' and 'cmd'. Your way is the OOPsy way, but in Lua it is just a function call with syntactic sugar.
