lua_general

The lua_general module allows running of arbitrary lua code at startup.

  • loader: C
  • image: lua_mtev.so

Module Configuration

  • directory (optional) [default: /install/prefix/libexec/mtev/lua/?.lua]

    allowed: /^.+$/

    This is the lua load path. See the lua manual for more details on meaning and syntax.

  • cpath (optional)

    allowed: /^.+$/

    This is the lua DSO load path. See the lua manual for more details on meaning and syntax.

  • lua_module (required)

    allowed: /^.+$/

    The lua module to load.

  • lua_function (required)

    allowed: /^.+$/

    The lua function to run in the module.

  • Cpreload (optional)

    allowed: /^.*$/

    Specify a set of luaopen_(.+) calls to make immediately after the context is created. This is useful if you're writing a standalone interpreter or other program that needs to extend lua (without shipping another lua module) before you start.

    allowed: /^(?:true|on|false|off)$/

    Specify if the function should be invoked in each concurrent eventer thread.

  • gc_full (optional) [default: 1000]

    Specify how many yield/resume iterations may happen before a full garbage collection cycle is performed (0 means never).

  • gc_step (optional) [default: 0]

    allowed: /^^(?:0|[1-9]\d*)$$/

    Specify the parameter to normal lua_gc LUA_GCSTEP calls.

  • gc_stepmul (optional) [default: 1]

    allowed: /^^(?:[1-9]\d*)$$/

    Set the lua gc step multiplier.

  • gc_pause (optional) [default: 200]

    allowed: /^^(?:[1-9]\d*)$$/

    Set the lua gc pause percentage.
