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

Hi all!

I've read the refman several times but strangely I only noticed recently that the precedence table in section 3.4.7 (I'm referring to 5.2.0, but the table is the same in 5.1.4) doesn't mention the following operators:

function call "()"
array indexing "[]"
field access "."
method call ":"

Not that this prevented me to be confused writing code, but somehow I subconsciously applied java/C/C++-like precedence rules for those and got away with it (I suppose that those operators have the highest precedence in Lua too).

I'm I missing something? Is there a reason to omit them?

Any enlightenment appreciated. TIA!
