Hello to all:

The following snippet is useful to carry over the command-line arguments
you have received into a Lua space. Maybe a useful addition to 4.1?

void lua_parseargs(lua_State * L, int argc, char * argv[])
    int     i ;

    /* Create a new table and push it onto the stack */
    /* insert argc keys into table */
    for (i=0 ; i<argc ; i++) {
        lua_pushstring(L, argv[i]);
        lua_rawseti(L, 1, i);
    /* Set table as global variable 'args' */
    lua_setglobal(L, "args");
    return ;
