The only [1] place in Lua where syntax sugar saves you one statement is
How about



local dummy=a();dummy.b(dummy) ?
Thanks. I forgot about that one. But it is not quite equivalent;
(object_valued_expression):method(...) saves you a named local but
then you don't have that named local.

In the case you don't need that local variable, isn't that an advantage?
