) as space inside code as space.
When pasting a text from some browsers/text editors, the following text come to my code:
The space that separates "stream," and "contentType" is a Character 160, not Character 32.. Lua do not accept this character as valid space when the content is loaded throught "lua_load" function.
lua_load fails with the following message: :4: <name> or '...' expected near '<\160>'
Issue #2) ----- UTF-8
The same character #160 when encoded as UTF-8 becomes the 2 bytes
The 0xC2 character in ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1) codification is the character "Â". What?
In my app, I strongly advise the users to encode their .lua file as UTF-8 because all of my system function expects utf-8 coding as string parameter
UTF-8 is a growing trend for internationalization, and lua_load should have a parameter that force the engines handle the lua script content as utf-8 encoded. Another sollution is to create lua_loadutf8 function. or... lua_loadutf16 (since UTF-16 is used as standard in many programming languages)
