Hi All
Thanks a lot. Using your recommended means (-DLUA_USE_APICHECK and checking return values of luaL_loadstring, lua_pcall ) , I found the errors.

I am trying to resolve the errors.

Lets say I have a simple function as below.

const char *c_function = "function modify_content_length(msg, length) "
                         "local offset = string.find(msg, \"\r\n\r\n\", 1, true) "
                         "return 0 "

Looks I am getting error for line "local offset = string.find(msg, \"\r\n\r\n\", 1, true) "
If that line I change to "local offset = string.find(msg, \"someword\", 1, true) " then I do not get error (do not crash, execution completes).

Ideally both statements are similar, in one case I have \r\n\r\n and other case I have someward.

In 1st case I get error "COMPILE: [string "function modify_content_length(msg, length) l..."]:1: unfinished string near '"'"

and other case it executes and not crashed.

Kindly help me to understand why this error.

lol serve me right for squinting at the code on my phone .. asterisk looks too much like double quotes :)
