| What happens to a table when I set the variable to nil. 
| [LUA]
| Rain={x=5, y=30, z=0}
| Rain=nil
| Will the {x=5, y=30, z=0} part of the table be collected by the garbage
| collector or will it be de-allocated of will it just float around in the
| memory.  What I want to do is create a table and use it in one function
| (many time) and be able to trow it away away when I dont need it anymore.
| is this possible?

There is some information on Lua garbage collection on the wiki :-
