Pure-Lua String Literal 99a62b4 is a module that can parse Lua string
literals in a way compatible with load(). It currently supports the full
syntax of Lua 5.2 and Lua 5.3 string literals.
It is available at
The error messages between Pure-Lua String Literal 99a62b4 and a
specific load()-based construct are quite similar. In fact, except for
one particular case, the error messages are exactly the same between
Pure-Lua String Literal 99a62b4's parse52 and Lua 5.2.4's own load()!
(If you find that they aren't, please let me know, it's probably a bug!)
The module provides the following APIs:
stringliteral.parse52(s) --> Parse a Lua 5.2 string literal contained in s.
stringliteral.parse53(s) --> Parse a Lua 5.3 string literal contained in s.
The given APIs use error(), so you might want to call them using pcall().
PS: I'm not sure if I would call this production-ready, but I *am* using
it in production...
