Please describe more what you mean by L1, L2.

If these are states in your C source code, and you use multithreading
approach for Lua (using yield/resume), then typically you can quite
easily exchange info between the different threads through global
data... .

If you use C states for different Lua source files, then I think you
should best define some C helper functions in form of a small library,
which the user then can invoke from Lua to exchange data in a defined

(but no experience with this second approach ... currently I for my
Lua applications I use one Lua file and possibly different states for
different threads... so global data in Lua file is then fine, the Lua
users can do this themselves then ...).
