Hi, list

Is it possible to pre-allocate a table with a specific size(i.e.
pre-allocating the max memory that may be used by a table)?

As per the book(Programming in Lua 4th Edition, page 37), which says that:
To represent a conventional array or a list, we simply use a table
with integer keys. There is neither a way
nor a need to declare a size.

Could somebody shed some light on this question?
I would be grateful to have some help with this question.

Best wishes
