Is there functions like the luaL_loadfile and luaL_loadbuffer in lua source to dump the lua scripts in Python's source?

And it has to have not been edited since the program started. I've had
some VERY strange-looking backtraces when I've been in the middle of
editing something, and maybe moved some code around, or just
added/deleted a block higher up in the file...

But if all of that, then yes, Python does help you figure out which
file to go look for. Love that feature.
