Right, but only one thread is in the vm at any point,
I have a single process app, with multiple threads
running different Lua scripts. If two threads enter
the vm lib (compiled in a dll) at the same time - it
Does the multistate version of Lua allow for
multiple threads in the same lib at the same time?

multithreaded Windows application. I have a state in each thread!
