This is almost embarrassing to ask about but I'm stuck. I'm trying to split a string at whitespace. I'm broadly assuming that string.gmatch() returns an array, which it appears to do in the loop example below. However if I try and grab an element from the return value it throws up an error, telling me it's a function. Can anyone help:?
local example = "an example string" -- works as expected. for i in string.gmatch(example, "%S+") do Debug.logn(i) end -- tells me s is a function Debug.logn( string.gmatch( example, "%S+" ) ) -- tells me I'm trying to index a function value Debug.logn( s )
