you mean, with lua_getlocal? i'm not sure.
looking at the code in lapi.c, I see that lua_getlocal calls
lua_currentline(func), so you need to have the function running.

like I said before, there is currently no official way to do this, ie.
using lua.h.
for code that uses inside information not in lua.h,
see PrintLocals() in luac/print.c.
