LUA MODULE

  requireany v$(_VERSION) - `require` any one of the listed modules.

SYNOPSIS
  
  local bit, name = require 'requireany' ('bit', 'bit32', 'bit.numberlua')
  print(bit.band(0x4, 0x1)) --> 5
  print(name) --> 'bit32' (for example)

  local bit = require 'requireany' ('bitfoo', nil) --> nil
  local bit = require 'requireany' ('bitfoo', {band=. . .}) --> {band=. . .}
  -- returns last non-string argument if fail to load any listed module.

DESCRIPTION

  Sometimes more than one module may have a necessary interface
  and you want to load just one of them depending on which are installed
  on the user's system.
  
  In the example above, there are three modules that provide some form
  of bitwise-AND operator, and it will preferrentially load them from
  left-to-right: first attempt to load 'bit' (LuaBitOp), and failing that
  attempt to load load 'bit32' (Lua 5.2), and failing that attempt to load
  'bit.numberlua' (a slower pure Lua module), and failing that raise
  an error.  Alternately, if the last value passed to `requireany` is a
  non-string, this value will be returned rather than raising an error.
  The second return value (`name`) is the name of the module loaded
  (or `nil`).
 
API

  require 'requireany' ( [names...] [, fallback] )  --> module, name
  
    See DESCRIPTION above.
    
    `require 'requireany' (...)` is a short-hand for
    `require 'requireany' . requireany (...)`.
