This time I'm sure i found some sort of bug

to run luatrace.profile I renamed it to luatrace.profile.bat (is there another way to make it executable in windows?) but when I ran it in my VS command window I got the following output:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Lua\5.1\own_tests>luatrace.profile

C:\Program Files (x86)\Lua\5.1\own_tests>lua -e 'require("luatrace.profile").go(
lua: (command line):1: unexpected symbol near ''require(luatrace.profile).go()''

C:\Program Files (x86)\Lua\5.1\own_tests>

If I rewrite the command in luatrace.profile.bat from

lua -e 'require("luatrace.profile").go()'


lua -e "require('luatrace.profile').go()"

everything works fine.

You want to either:

lua -luatrace my_file.lua

(luatrace.profile is a shell script, not a lua script)


lua -luatrace.profile my_file.lua

(uatrace/profile.lua is a lua script)

What you're doing is asking lua to run a text file, which doesn't work.
