- Subject: Completeness of refman precedence table

I've read the refman several times but strangely I only noticed recently
that the precedence table in section 3.4.7 (I'm referring to 5.2.0, but
the table is the same in 5.1.4) doesn't mention the following operators:
function call "()"
array indexing ""
field access "."
method call ":"
Not that this prevented me to be confused writing code, but somehow I
subconsciously applied java/C/C++-like precedence rules for those and
got away with it (I suppose that those operators have the highest
precedence in Lua too).
I'm I missing something? Is there a reason to omit them?
Any enlightenment appreciated. TIA!
