Hmmm, well, ... I can't replicate it !

I have written my first-ever Lua program,
which reads

	os.spawn ("texlua",  "texlua", "d:/TeX/Live/2008/texmf/scripts/texlive/texdoc.tlu", "minitoc")

saved it as Test.texlua, and tried to run it

	TeXlua Test.texlua

but regardless of whether I have one or two
"texlua, "s within the parentheses, and
regardless of whether or not the first (or
sole) has string-quotes around it, nothing
discernible happens ...

In fact, the only contents of Test.texlua that
have so far had any perceivable effect are

	os.spawn ("logoff")

Nothing more complex has yet achieved anything :-(
