luTrace (Lua Micro Trace) is a tiny stand-alone module that prints a trace of functions executed by a script (like strace, ltrace, etc.)

Usage: LUTRACE_FILTER=my_module LUTRACE_TIME=1 lua -llutrace your_script.lua
- LUTRACE_FILTER - can be used to provide a string pattern to act as a filter to source code filenames, so you can "grep" only for modules or packages you're interested in.
- LUTRACE_EXCLUDE - the reverse of LUTRACE_FILTER: a string pattern used to exclude lines from the trace
- LUTRACE_ON - if set to
0, disables tracing
- LUTRACE_TIME - if set to any value, adds timestamps to the tracing output
Loading this module automatically sets a debug hook that activates tracing. This module exports no functions.
