I need to explain the data packets from the customer inside LUA. it
needs to convey a string
inside LUA, so i use lua_pushlstring, but people response that
lua_pushlstring is in low
efficiency and advise not to use it often.
Is this for a Wireshark dissector?
Do you have any measurements (profiling) to indicate the
lua_pushlstring() is causing problems?
You cannot avoid using lua_pushlstring() if you really must exchange
strings between Lua and C. I can imagine cases (very large volumes of
traffic, say) where dissectors would be slow enough to get in the way,
but I have not experienced that problem myself.
