Post Standard Lua?
How much of the standard Lua libs are present?

This is what I've done to see what kinds of binds are available ( common trick in GMod ):
for k,v in pairs( _G ) do print( tostring( k ) .. " - " .. tostring( v ) ) end

However, almost none of the standard lua libs are present ( most notably, file input/output functions ).

Also, anyone figure out how to run a lua file? I can't read the console cause the letters are so damned small, and pressing and holding the left/right arrow keys and backspace results in a VERY slow scroll/delete speed ( not to mention, there's no scrollbar for the console ).

The os and io libraries are not included for safety's sake. Data's decision.

It would at least be nice if there was a /data/ directory where you could write .txt only files ( the way Garry's Mod handles them.. it works pretty well.

Data said something about giving us a special save file functionality, but we have yet to find it. Have to wait till he gets the documentation done.
