Compiling for lua 5.1
---------------------

Starting from version 1.0.8pre1, tolua++ can be compiled with both lua 5.0 and
5.1. Both versions will output the same code, and the C API (tolua++.h) is the
same.

The build system is not yet ready to detect/decide when to compile for 5.1,
the easiest way right now is to add a file called 'custom.py' on the root of
the package, with the following:

## BEGIN custom.py

CCFLAGS = ['-I/usr/local/include/lua5.1', '-O2', '-ansi']
LIBPATH = ['/usr/local/lib']
LIBS = ['lua5.1', 'dl', 'm']
tolua_bin = 'tolua++5.1'
tolua_lib = 'tolua++5.1'
TOLUAPP = 'tolua++5.1'

## END custom.py

This will build the binary as 'tolua++5.1' and the library as 'libtolua++5.1.a'
(taken from tolua_bin and tolua_lib), and take the lua headers and libraries
from /usr/local/include/lua5.1 and /usr/local/lib. It will also link with
'-llua5.1'. Modify the parameters acording to your system.

Compatibility
-------------

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when running code inside tolua
using the -L option:

* `...' and arg: you can still use 'arg' on 5.1, this is done automatically by
adding the 'arg' declaration to functions on files loaded with dofile.

For example, the line:

function foo( ... )

becomes

function foo( ... ) local arg = {n=select('#', ...), ...};

This lets you use the same code on both versions without having to make any
modifications.

* keep in mind that there are slight differences on the way string.gsub works,
and the original version of the function is always kept, so it will behave
diffently depending on which version of lua you're using.
