Hi Lua ML!

I'm confused about the terminology: What is 'light' user data? Is is
something special? If I write a C function which pops an (in C defined
element) from the stack and creates a copy, should I push the result
of the copy operation as light user data?

    Code example:

    static int config_member_copy(lua_State *L) {
        struct config_member_t *mem;
        struct config_member_t *copy;

        mem = lua_touserdata(L, 1);
        lua_pop(L, 1);

        copy = some_magic_copy_function(mem);

        lua_pushlightuserdata(L, copy);

        return 1

Is this piece of code the correct approach?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
Kind regards,
Matthias Beyer
