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

Is it possible to change the order of parameters in a function taking varargs?  Maybe using the select(n, ...) function?

This is what I want to do:

function foo(fmt, ...)
    -- switch element 1 and 2 of {...}

   print(string.format('%d %s', ...))

foo('%s %d', 42, 'balmer')

(background is doing i18n in Lua, whith messages (= format strings) that can have the order of parameters changed)
