I'm tring to use luarocks with lua-5.2.2 that is compiled myself on Windows. but it runs errors for 'module()' function, that is not available in my lua5.2 install, Is luarocks lua5.2 compatible without LUA_COMPAT_ALL flags? how to make it works for my configure?

otherwise, If I called luarocks with it's default configure, how could I install lua5.2 modules into my lua install?

I install my lua at D:/Lua52, there are several files/directories:

So, I want luarocks install *.lua into D:/Lua52/lua, and install *.dll into D:/Lua52/clibs, just like Lua For Window does. but I can only specific TREE in install.bat. is that anyway to do that?

I will look into this. Thanks for the report!
