Summary0000366: tex.pdfoutput=1 creates dvi
DescriptionThe following file creates dvi instead of (expected) pdf:

luatex --ini myfile.tex
\directlua {
tex.enableprimitives('',tex.extraprimitives ())

\hsize 6.7cm

Hello world

As tex.pdfoutput is advertised as "read write" (doc Integer parameters) I assumed that this also means that assinging a number > 0 to tex.pdfoutput (at the beginning of the document) creates pdf.

This is no problem for me as I can say \pdfoutput=1, but I just want to make myself important and create a bug report.
TagsNo tags attached.

Reverse the order of the two lines in \directlua. At the time of your
tex.pdfoutput=1, the command doesn't actually exist yet.

PS you are important even without bug reports, but they sure help :)

the backend specific tex.pdf* assignments will be removed from the tex namespace and there will be something tex.backend = "pdf" (or in another namespace)
