No, arrays are not 1 based. You can write a and it does what you
think it does. Then, the standard implementation of Lua is more
efficient if you use the range 1..n instead of the range 0..n-1, but
IIRC other implementations do not behave like that because this is a
detail of the implementation, it is not part of the Lua language.
You should really think Lua has no array, it has just (hash) tables.
