Is there a way to load Lua scripts from memory? For example, at the moment I call lua_dofile() and supply a Lua state and filename. What I want to do is copy my Lua file from my PAK file in to memory and load it from there. Thanks

There are 2 functions that you can use to accomplish this:


LUALIB_API int lua_dobuffer (lua_State *L, const char *buff, size_t size,
const char *name) {
return aux_do(L, luaL_loadbuffer(L, buff, size, name));
}


LUALIB_API int lua_dostring (lua_State *L, const char *str) {
return lua_dobuffer(L, str, strlen(str), str);
}


These are taken from the source code in the aux library, the same that provides lua_dofile.

EDIT: spelling nazi syndrome ;)
