RE: Function to return the current directory

I have had the same desire, and so far have not found a reasonable solution. For an application that would be targeted to Linux systems, I have wrapped up the lua script inside a shell script, having the shell commands check the directory and then send it to murgaLua as a variable or commandline parameter, but it's not very portable. Even that requires some extra work, since you also have to check whether the file is actually the script or just a link to the script.

EDIT: There must be something within Lua that can be used for this purpose. It already is aware of where the script is, considering it uses relative paths for dofile(), so I guess the question must be where does it store that info?
