Re: save lua-table in lua-script

Here's a link to my recursive table.tostring function. It handles everything except userdata.

Re: XML in Love

Well, as much as I love pure lua and despite the fact that my entire current project and all of its modules are using lua tables to store data, I still find a need from time to time to use xml. I just wondered if it had been considered and after viewing your answers I can see your logic regarding th...

Re: Decoding error: Invalid UTF-8 [SOLVED]

And within 5 minutes of posting this I stumbled onto the solution (facepalm). To all future developers: I am using Notepad++ to write lua and my encoding was set to ANSI. Changing it to Encode in UTF-8 without BOM allowed the offending code block to work. The encoding UTF-8 without BOM does not wor...

Re: love.filesystem.deltree

This version will account for underscores in the file name and extension. function love.filesystem.getFileType(sFile) local sRet = ""; local sFileRev = string.reverse(sFile); local nPoint = string.find(sFileRev, "[.%..]"); if nPoint then sRet = string.sub(sFile, string.len(sFile)...

Re: love.filesystem.deltree

Hey, just wanted to stop by and say thanks, Roland_Yonaba. String manipulation has always been my weakness in lua. I have read tutorials, seen examples and still it gave me trouble. But after seeing your example, I spent a few hours buried in my hard copy of the Lua Reference Manual and playing with...

Re: love.filesystem.deltree

Oh, I see. I most definitely will try it then, thank you. Here's another one for creating a delimited table from a string. function string.totable(sString, sDelimiter) if type(sString) == "string" and type(sDelimiter) == "string" then if sString ~= "" and sDelimiter ~= ...

Re: love.filesystem.deltree

That will find the first occurance of ".". If you look at my code, you'll see that mine searches starting from the end of the string. If a person simply does pattern matching then getFiletype for "myfile.something.ext" will return ".something" or ".something.ext&qu...

Re: love.filesystem.deltree

Glad you see it my way :ultraglee: . I hope folks get some use out of it. Here's another little snippet for getting file type. This will return the "." but you can adjust it to not do so if you please. function love.filesystem.getFiletype(sFile) local sRet = ""; if love.filesyste...

Re: love.filesystem.deltree

The remove function won't delete a folder with things inside.
