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

Does this also mean, that I can reassign 's' as in the code below:

	for s in string.gfind(..something..) do
		if ..sometest.. then
			s= "override"

Currently, this is a 'no-no' and the consequences are sometimes hard to see (most likely, the loop just quits?)

 Although undocumented, it also means that the index variable can be
reassigned within the loop without changing the loop -- in 5.0, this
behaviour was "undefined". (Whether it will actually be defined in
5.1 is yet to be seen, but it is sometimes useful.)
