[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

Lua numbers and strings are not mutable. Is the reason for this mainly the hash table usage (= changing the value would require a different hash slot) or are there other reasons as well?

Asking because I'd like the enum values to _be_ mutable; in such cases, if I base hashing solely on the 'family' of the enums, not the value, the value could change?
