Loading External Native Library (dll or .so)

Post by prmottajr » Mon May 28, 2012 11:36 pm

I am trying to load an external .so via require but love 0.8.0 says it cannot find (Actually the lua within it) the .so although it has looked on the correct places and the file is in the same folder as the main.lua

I am trying to make wiiuseL (a wrapper that my students made in 2010 for the wiiuse lib, so that we can use the wiimote) to work again. Back in 2010 we have used love 0.5 and 0.6 and it worked fine, after that I got a little out of love and now I am using it as a reference for the Human-Computer Interaction course that I teach at a University here in Rio de Janeiro.

thanks in advance!

I haven't even include it. The require reads like this :

wiiuseL = require("wrapperL")

inside the load function.

any thoughts?

You can't load from the same directory the main.lua is in.

What is the option, then? Putting the dlls/so in a subdirectory?
When I write def I mean function.

Even that wouldn't work, I tried.

Take a look at this project.

It uses a audioin.dll .
