As of Lua 5.3 you can add a #! line to a precompiled bytecode file and
it'll parse and run.
Seeing as how insane that is, can we get to embed bytecode in source
code? As in:
The byte code is an implementation detail, and possibly not compatible
between versions. So no, you wouldn't want to write it as part of the
source code anyway. It would be unmaintainable.
What's your use-case? Code obfuscation?
Technically I'd have a preprocessor read source, convert the parts it
cares about to bytecode, inject them into the original source (replacing
the... thing) and load().
