I have been trying out various builds of lua 4.0a with the Digital
Mars compiler (ex Symantec)
I have built with the 32 bit DOS extender and that seems to work.
I have then built with the small and large models for 16 bit DOS.
They won't yet be of use for 8086 because I have to change the
compiler flags not to use 80386 extensions - I forgot it.
I have met the limit=-192 error as well. I think I could wait for the
4.0 beta to get rid of such things.
I think I can build the libraries and luac.exe with for the small
model. Lua.exe is just too big. I have tried min.c (in \etc) instead. I
have just been reading LTN1 which gives some useful hints.
