Hi, I'm new to Lua and I'm also more used to Linux than Windows so these
questions probably seem very basic.

How do I get a Lua console in Windows? I expected that just typing lua
an the command prompt would work but it doesn't.

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate and Lua 5.1. I have compiled Lua and
luabind and I'm experimenting with the examples given here:
which work fine.

The reason I'm asking is that I'm trying to modify the function to
return an int and then print the result but from what I've read, trying
to write to stdout (or rather the Windows equivalent) won't work because
lua doesn't know about stdout. So now I want to make a dll and use the
lua console to load the library as described in section 5.1 here:

Eventually, I need to bind a function that returns a pointer and this
has to be a 64bit pointer.
I've been googling around and there seems to be some issues using lua on
64bit machines but so far I have not found a definitive answer.
So can anyone say for sure if I can bind to a function that returns a
pointer on a 64 bit machine?
