Are you compiling it as C++? Lua compiles both as ANSI C and as
valid C++, it does _not_ declare its external functions extern "C" as
most others do. This is by purpose.
You may use the etc/lua.hpp header, to have the extern declarations.

I'm having some difficulty creating a Static Libary (lua.lib) in
Visual C++ 2005 using Lua 5.11 and compiling it from source.
When I compile Lua and get the lua.lib it seems to generate the
library.. If I use that lib to link with a test program I get the
luaadd.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _lua_close
referenced in function _main
unresolved external symbol _lua_settop referenced in function "int
__cdecl luaadd(int,int)" (?luaadd@@YAHHH@Z)
and a bunch of other errors of missing symbols.
As a test, I downloaded the lua5_1_Win32_vc8.tar and used
lua5.1.lib in my test program and it linked fine and worked.
What am I doing wrong when I compile the static lib from scratch?
I'm rather confused, as I was able to compile it as an executable
and run some of the test.lua scripts fine (lua.exe) When I change
the option to lib it seems it is leaving out some important
symbols. Is there something I'm missing in the project file?
Thank you for your time,
