- Subject: Printing to terminal/standard output problem

My program prints stuff to the console. Most of the time I use just
print(), but in some cases I prefer to use io.write() and io.flush(),
for example to show progress on an
operation. The problem is that, when I do, the Lua script won't run
anymore if not executed from a terminal. At any rate, there's little
point in showing stuff in the terminal if it's not visible, so I suppose
I would need to set the standard output to a file. So how can I
determine if the script is run from a terminal or not?
I use LuaJIT on Kubuntu Linux, if that matters.
Thanks in advance
