RE: "murgaLua -e string" in Windows and Mac

Why do you think that this doesn't work in Windows?

Because the last time i had access to a windows machine I tested it and it failed.

You don't have to escape the double quotes when you use the single quotes. lua -e 'variable="string"' works perfectly.

I wasn't aware of this. Thanks for the lesson.

On Windows you can only use double quotes

I'm guessing it was probably the backspace that was causing the error then? Or do I need to always use only double quotes if I want it to work in Windows? If that's the case how would you nest quotes?
