I've never understood why Lua attracts so much opprobrium for 1 based
indexing. I started my career working on mainframes and all the
languages had 1 based indexing (COBOL, PL1, Fortran, REXX).
It wasn't until I started using C that I had ever used a language with 0
based indexing which makes sense for a language where arrays decay to
pointers. IMO, the Lua authors got it right.
