A couple other trivial bugs, and it now compiles cleanly with Lua 5.2.
For non-windows users there is a new function,, to create a
hard or symbolic link.

BTW, there is a reason why common Windows .lnk files (i.e. shortcuts) are not supported?

I think it would be very useful to have a way to create/modify/read those files, since they are so ubiquitous on Windows and sadly are binary files with a weird format (I think it is not even completely open, IIRC), so they require Windows API calls to be created or modified reliably.
