What it kind of sounds like you're wanting is a Lua REPL (Read–eval–print 
loop) similar to running lua without any arguments. If that's the case, you 
may want to look at as well (it's under a 
permissive license.) Otherwise, you can look directly at the lua source code 
to see how it's implemented (in src/lua.c if memory serves.)
