Is there a simple way (stock Lua 5.1.4) to make a Lua script behave

I hope someone has found a clever trick that can solve my problem. :-)

I'm not on Windows right now, but does os.getenv("CMDCMDLINE") look
any different between scite vs. console?

Mmmh, just tried.
It looks different when typed directly on the command line:

--> cmd  /K  ansicon -p

but inside a Lua script:

print (os.getenv("CMDCMDLINE"))	--> nil

regardless of whether it is run inside scite or from a Windows XP shell.
