eevee [Lexaloffle Blog Feed] Several built-in Lua functions aren't mentioned in the manual <p><em>assert</em>, <em>ipairs</em>, and <em>next</em> appear to exist as in stock Lua, but the manual doesn't mention them (outside of the changelog). It <em>does</em> mention every other supported Lua built-in, so this omission makes it harder to gauge what exactly is still exposed (especially without access to <em>_G</em>). Especially odd since the coroutine documentation mentions wrapping <em>coresume</em> inside <em>assert</em>.</p> <p>Also, the <em>select</em> builtin <strong>is</strong> documented (indirectly, under Function Arguments), but doesn't seem to exist! At least not in 0.2.0h.</p> Fri, 14 Aug 2020 23:44:41 UTC Star Anise Chronicles: Oh No Wheres Twig?? <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76334#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_anise_wheres_twig-2.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76334#p"> Star Anise Chronicles: Oh No Wheres Twig??</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=13006"> eevee</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76334#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Please help Star Anise find his best friend in the whole world!</p> <p>I haven't touched PICO-8 in ages, and I thought it was about time I changed that.
