- Subject: overloading registrations

I have a situation that I feel others must have come across before but I
am unable to find any solution to my problem in the archive or the docs.
What I would like to do is to overload a registration of a c function.
What I would like to write in c is something like:
int myhandler( lua_State* L )
int n_returns = 0;
... do stuff for function foo
... do stuff for function fun
return n_returns; /* would be set by something above
So I envision lua_tostring(L,0) retrieving something analogous to what
argv is in the parameters to a program - the program name. That way
I could write the following registrations:
Why would I want to do this? Well, the data type that I wish to use lua
to handle in scripts has a variable number of entry points which can be
determined programmatically but are not feasible to provide a separate c
function for them at compile time.
I hope the question is lucid and my quandry clear. Thank you for any
interest in answering it. Is this possible?
All the best,
