You could do this a couple of ways, but the easiest way would be to create a
static string right in the C source which represents the Lua byte code, link
the lua library, and on main just do lua_dobuffer on the array. You could
even write a system that does this for you, but the system you run it on
would need a C compiler to actually make the exe. I actually toyed around
with adding something like this to my Lua IDE: I am still toying ;)
