> "Creates a new thread running in a new, independent state...."
> What does "thread" mean here? A pthread, for example?

"The type thread represents independent threads of execution and
it is used to implement coroutines (see §2.6). Lua threads are
not related to operating-system threads. Lua supports coroutines
on all systems, even those that do not support threads natively."
