  What is lacking in string.find(), string.match(), string.gmatch(),
string.sub() or string.gsub()?


This is something I wanted to learn how to do. I spent around 3 days experimenting with Lua's source code, trying to affiliate myself with how (i.e) jumps worked because I enjoyed learning about the language. As of recently, I figured out how to implement this into Lua 5.4 because I had an epiphany in what "luaK_patchtohere" does.
