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

By analogy to the function, it would be nice to have a
function string.bytes so that the construction

     for p, c in string.bytes(s) do body end

will iterate over all bytes in string s, with p being the position.
This is surprisingly clumsy in pure Lua, unless I am missing a trick.
Of course, if the string is pure ASCII, will do the trick.
