Summary0000484: Misclassifies lua source file as 'JavaScript source, ASCII text'
DescriptionLua source files using `require()` get classified as 'JavaScript source, ASCII text' in version 5.45, whereas earlier versions (tested 5.44) used to classify them as 'ASCII text'.

This is probably due to what is [commit a2756aa50fdf7d87ebb14002ffd7609373ea6839]( on the Github readonly mirror.
Steps To ReproduceCreate the following lua source files:
(blank file)

> file --version
magic file from /usr/share/file/misc/magic
seccomp support included
> file test.lua
test.lua: JavaScript source, ASCII text

> LD_PRELOAD=../lib/ ./file -m ../share/file/misc/magic.mgc --version
magic file from ../share/file/misc/magic.mgc
seccomp support included
> LD_PRELOAD=../lib/ ./file -m ../share/file/misc/magic.mgc ../../../../../../sample/test.lua
../../../../../../sample/test.lua: ASCII text
The above magic file is the one included with version 5.44

> file -m ../../../5.44-3/usr/share/file/misc/magic.mgc --version
magic file from ../../../5.44-3/usr/share/file/misc/magic.mgc
seccomp support included
> file -m ../../../5.44-3/usr/share/file/misc/magic.mgc ../../../../../../sample/test.lua
../../../../../../sample/test.lua: ASCII text
Version 5.45 works as before with the magic from version 5.44 (this is probably obvious, but I didn't know how file(1) worked at the start of this). Version 5.44 misclassifies when used with the magic from version 5.45.
TagsNo tags attached.
