Thanks Alexander,

I inserted require("luaposix") at the top of my program, and it errored out 
with "module 'luaposix' not found". I don't know if this is because I got the 
syntax wrong on the require statement, because I should have used something 
besides require, or because luaposix isn't installed. If it's the latter, that 
pretty much precludes my using it, because I don't want to require UMENU users 
to install any packages other than Lua.
