but why not store the chunk text in all cases? it seems incoherent.

I'd like to retrieve the current chunk (whole chunk text) in a debug hook call. I know how to retrieve the the current file name. But are the current chunks saved somewhere so one can get them?

If you load chuncks with luaL_loadfile, the text is not stored.

If you load chuncks with luaL_loadbuffer, you can give the chunk text
as the chunk name and retrieve it as you would retrieve the file name.

If you load chuncks with luaL_loadstring, this is done automatically.
