It seems I have a similar problem under BeOS (PR2), at least when I do it
from within one of my own (C++) applications. In my tests, however, the
data ("hello") get written. I'm not quite sure whether the file get closed
(by "writeto()"), but I was able to verify the written data using an
editor. I haven't tried a similar sequence in the interactive lua
interpreter, but I'll try it tomorrow.
I have also done things like this from within a C++ application on
Macintosh, both 68K and PPC, without noticing any problems.
In all my tests, the filename in the first writeto has been just a simple
name like "lua.out", no path, but I guess that's irrelevant.
I'll try to find out more about this problem. (I use Lua 3.0, of course.)
