for example:

end

------------b.lua-----------

How can make it work?

Thanks,

Example:
dofile("b.lua")
main2()

Try reading the manual and PIL from the lua website..

Thx a lot: ;)
One more question, Do I need close the file after the function is called?


No, you don't need to close the file. dofile() just executes the lua script file. I think there are also other ways to include script files but you'll have to see the manual for that.
