Why? Simply to give me something to do in Lua. Or, more interestingly, I could be writing a 3D engine in Lua that uses a BSP Tree.
I am aware that tables provide direct access to data, in fact I am using that very feature.
Regardless of what my intentions are, any suggestions? (I'm waiting for another of those Lua life-saving one-liners that I'm sure someone will think of. Lua always seems to come through somehow. :) )
