I wanted to use the require() function from lua to add a module to my code. I know about os.loadAPI() and dofile() and the such and I can make my code have the result that I want, but I was wondering if there was a particular reason that require() is not included in computercraft. I've been searching through the documentation and reading forum after forum with no clear answer. Can anyone help me out?

Not sure of the reason it's not implemented, but there are Lua-based versions that do the same thing on the forums. Alternatively, `dofile` is pretty much identical except it doesn't cache the result.
