I implement luerl, an Lua implementation running on top of erlang/OTP (
https://github.com/rvirding/luerl), and try to keep it as compatible as I
can with standard Lua, currently Lua 5.2.
One thing I have noticed is that is skips leading "shebang" line, that is a
line which starts with "#! / ...". This is useful for scripts and for
loading script files into Lua. Where is this documented? Is it documented?
I have tried to find it but haven't been successful.
It also skips leading BOM as well.
AFAIK, the Lua manual doesn't say anything about a BOM. Maybe your C
library is responsible?!
Thanks for any help,
