Thanks to Dirk, that correctly points out that Lua doesn't really know.
Thanks to Philipp too. But to use different xl_getxtable() functions, I
have to use
different metatables, and the same even using userdata.
The best thing I can think of is to create a lua table for every array
I want to export.
All the lua tables share the same metatable, and
hence the same function xl_getxtable().
Just after creation of a table,
I store the lua item in a pascal variable. I will end up with
variables, each containing the "lua reference" for the just created
When xl_getxtable() is called from lua, it will find on the lua
stack the key
and the table (some kind of pointer), which I can compare
with the values stored
in my variables. It should work, I suppose that
lua refers to the same table using always the
same value or pointer -
don't you think so?
