At it's most basic, something along these lines:
local table = require( 'table' )
for aKey, aValue in pairs( table ) do
if type( aValue ) == 'function' then
print( aKey )
That said, this is far from fool proof as Lua is much more free form than most other languages. In other words, there is no obvious way to achieve universal introspection, as Lua code can express itself in multitude of ways.
