Now, suppose I actually want to invoke an object method, instead of
calling a function? I could do that with an explicit wrapper:
table.foreach(tab, function(k, v) return obj:method(k, v) end)
but that would get tedious, so I would want to refactor it:
function table.foreachmeth(obj, tab, method)
for k, v in pairs(tab) do
local rv = obj[method](obj, k, v)
if rv then return rv end
Right. But if Lua understood that obj[method] was a member function, it
could push it implicitly always. And that would get rid of the ':' vs
'.' issue as well. You always use '.' and the runtime decides which
functions are object methods and which are static. This might require
some additional syntax at the point of function declaration, but that
should not be too hard.
Anyway, never satisfied :-)
