append_hf() function is part of textops module. KSR.hdr subpackage is
from core, somehow inspired from old app_lua sr.hdr subpackage. That was
the reason to have different name, not to have a confusion on dependencies.

The functions available in KSR module and submodules are listed by:

kamctl rpc app_lua.api_list

In terms of functions, they should be pretty much in pair, in the way
that any kemi function exported by core or a module is available
immediately in all kemi languages. The only difference can be in the
kemi functions implemented by the kemi-interpreter modules, respectively
KSR.x subpackage.

KSR.pv is also implemented by each kemi-interpreter module, but that is
because of KSR.pv.get() which needs special code for each interpreter,
otherwise the functions in KSR.pv must be the same in all kemi
languages, with the same behaviour in the script.

KSR.x is supposed to collect per kemi-interpreter specific functions or
have code that is specific per interpeter. For example KSR.x.exit() has
an implementation that reuses various tricks of the interpreter to stop
execution of the kemi script.

Indeed, the native-lua 'exit' is stopping the lua interpreter
completely, which in this case is kamailio, so it stops kamailio.

You have to use KSR.x.exit() instead.

Again, here is about the functions of the interpreter. I think that also
in Python there is an system exit function that stops compeltely the
interpreter (kamailio in this case).

So, the importat thing here is that the scripting language interpreter
is kamailio itself, so the native functions for that scripting language
behave as being run by the standalone interpreter.

I do not really get the above? If you do not load natherlper module,
kamailio crashes of used with kemi lua engine? If yes, can you provide
the backtrace with gdb from the core file? It needs to be fixed.

Not necessarily. Kemi framework code from core is more or less the same
in 5.0 and 5.1, but the 5.1 has lot more kamailio functions exported to
kemi. Based on your needs, using 5.0 with kemi can be sufficient.
