That's the joy and sorrow of Lua - it is a module, just not defined in
a common way. You look at the end of the file, and it says:

end -- 2 global things remain: 'Object' and 'newclass'

This is probably bad style, but it does work fine.  require 'yaci'
adds these new globals.

Hi Joh,
As a followup to S. Donovan's comment, may I humbly recommend a few
alternatives, in case you still want to stick to a more "updated" Lua class
library ?
There's a ton out there, but I can definitely recommend MiddleClass[1],
which is Lua 5.1 and 5.2 compatible. It is quite solid, and extensible via
Also, there is 30log[2], if you like tiny things. I am the author.
