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