you should include the full path to "Cat" as you did with "data.STACK_CATS" to the directory from where you started the program.
Alternatively you can change your working directory (eg. with lfs) to the "Cat" directory (which I don't think is such a very good idea), the reverse may also be true, that you accidentally changed the working directory and thus Lua can't find your module anymore.

I'm facing an issue I have no idea how to solve. In a subdir "data", a module "STACK_CATS" requires "Cat". STACK_CATS is itself required from a module "stack" in the top dir, using
  require "data.STACK_CATS"

Each require individually works, but the cascade does not:
lua: ./data/STACK_CATS.lua:3: module 'Cat' not found:
       no field package.preload['Cat']
       no file './Cat.lua'
stack traceback:
       [C]: in function 'require'
       ./data/STACK_CATS.lua:3: in main chunk
       [C]: in function 'require'
       stack.lua:31: in main chunk
       [C]: ?

I guess the current dir (I mean ./) is not updated to /data when passing from the module "stack" to the module "STACK_CATS": when copying the file stack.lua into the top dir, all works fine. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to force module search in the actual current dir?
