Here's a little gotcha mentioned in the changes section of the manual
"Function os.execute now returns true when command terminates
successfully and nil plus error information otherwise."
We will have to get out of the old habit of regarding non-zero as being 'bad'
> = os.execute 'lss'
'lss' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program or batch file.
nil exit 1
The docs say it returns nil, 'exit' or 'signal' and the return code
BTW, thanks again to the Lua team for packing so much functionality into 150K !
