 string.ToTable( )

Contents

Description

Splits the string into characters and creates a sequential table of characters.

WARNING

As a result of the UTF-8 encoding, non-ASCII characters will be split into more than one character in the output table. Each character value in the output table will always be 1 byte.

Arguments

string str

The string you'll turn into a table.

Returns

table

A sequential table where each value is a character from the given string

Examples

Example

Examples

Example

Demonstrates how this function behaves with non-ASCII characters - in this case, Greek letters.

for k,v in ipairs(string.ToTable("abcd αβγδ")) do
	print(k, bit.tohex(string.byte(v)), v)
end

Output:

1	00000061	a
2	00000062	b
3	00000063	c
4	00000064	d
5	00000020

7	000000b1	?

10	000000ce	?
11	000000b3	?
