    Adding a default value to a table makes the ipairs method goes in a infinity loop

    Floating numbers print

    Try using string.format to see what's going on, in my case I did: print(string.format("%.20f", 298+2/3)) print(string.format("%.20f", 128+4/9*384)) print(298+2/3 == 128+4/9*384) And got: 298.66666666666668561447 298.66666666666662877105 false

    Variable can't decide what it is

    The thing in the second, the function type returns a string and you are comparing with a non-string values: -- Bad print(type(event.params.var1) == string) print(type(event.params.var1) == table) -- Good print(type(event.params.var1) == "string") print(type(event.params.var1) == "table") So you...

    Hello, I'm using Warcraft 3 and I wanna handle better the errors, because it don't have its own event log I wanna create it myself to improve its debugging, but I have problems: It doesn't print the errors or warns unless you use "xpcall(func, print)", I can do that but it will make the errors...

    Lua error. My file name is trans.lua. the error is - trans.lua:1: '=' expected

    Hey, why did you add the ';'?, lua don't use it. Edit: Nah, you can use it, I think is your code convention.

    Do you know that the table is the variable "console" and not its childs?, but you can't do: console[1] = something Because console[1] is not a table, in fact, is not anything, the correct would be: console = {} console[1] = {} console[1].data = "a string" -- Or console = {{}} -- a table stored...

    How works _G and _ENV and what can I do with them?

    I'm curious to know how they work and the information I found isn't enough so I need a better explanation and also wanna know what can I do with them because I see the programs that use Lua use them to create their global values.
