It's not entirely clear what you want to do. You can create new global

why not simply use a table? I'd be interested to hear the use case.
Also, I think you meant to write "for i = 10, 1, -1 do".
Thanks, yes "for i = 10, 1, -1 do".
I wanted to generate a bunch of "free standing tables within a namespace
but not nested in another table. Each table would be a manufacturers
part number and would start with letters and end with numbers, i.e
WOT2930, hence the concatenation.
I bet I'll just end up doing this with nested tables or Globals but I
was also trying to come up with a a DIY data structure in C. I was
thinking that is I had 2 or more arrays in C within a function I could
insert a key in one and a value in another and still reference both by
their numeric keys. I am trying to build a constructor prototype for use
in both C and Lua.
I might also try to generate a child Lua script by writing this to a
