That's good to know. I currently have the problem that I would like to use
lpeg and luacairo together with LuaInterface. When I try to load the lpeg.dll
using "require" I get the error message that lua is not set up to use dynamic
libraries. Is it right that I have to recompile LuaInterface with support for
dynamic libraries switched on in order to use external libraries?
