- Subject: no substring match?

Lua appears to have no literal substring match (find, match, and gmatch all take patterns), and also no function for quoting a string into a pattern that will match that precise string. So there seems to be no way (short of implementing your own pattern quoting) to do a literal substring match in Lua. Am I missing something?
