Hi. I have to maintain some Lua 4 code, and I have no idea how to make a local function call itself. In the following code, I'd like to make G local to the function F. Is this possible?

function F()

   G = function(value)
       if value == 10 then
           return "stop"
       return G(value + 1)
print( G(1) )

print( F(1) )
assert(not G, "G escaped to the global scope")
