In addition to putting code in modules, I am now in a position where I'd like to sometimes unload them.
I know about this function:
package.loaded[m] = nil
_G[m] = nil
I find it works great if I call it from a global area: if I require, unrequire, require, I get a different table.
But I am not finding it working like that if I call it from within a module itself. Even though package.loaded[m] and _G[m] are nil (I can check these by storing _G in a local), require gets me back the same module.
So I am wondering, are there any tricks to using unrequire from within a module itself (to ensure another module is unloaded)?
BTW this is all in Lua (no C).
