Thus the following is smaller module with your same requirements:
assert(require'true' == true)
Not saying what I have cannot be smaller, but don't make
absolute statements that aren't true.
And any non-empty Lua module file still takes more size on disk
The point is to have it as a separate file/an external module, in
which case my statements are true.
My code isn't in a separate module file, it is defined directly in the source Lua file that is using the module. Thus adding the ~28 bytes to the source file is much less than the 1KB needed for a completely separate, and empty, file. Your requirements didn't state that it had to be a separate/external file, just that it is the smallest possible Lua module, which isn't true.
