'Include' files in Lua

We have had questions in the past about "including" standard scripts into a script file.

Lua provides a very simple function for doing that: dofile.

If you have some standard commands that you want to share, simply do this:

dofile "myfilename.lua"

You might want to prepend a path, for example the MUSHclient executable or worlds path. For example:

path = GetInfo (57) -- World files default path (directory)

In that case your include command may look like this:

dofile (GetInfo (57) .. "myfilename.lua")

There is also a "require" function that works similarly, but searches a path (which you can specify) and doesn't load the same file twice.
