This may be trivial.

If you have an expression given as a string ex. “34*math.sin(30)” and wants the result put into a variable ?

That is at run time of course…

Re Peter

How about this? It might be too complicated but its is a lua function trick

```
f=loadstring("x=34*math.sin(30)")
f()
print(x)
```

Exactly

I allways enjoy simple and elegant solutions

Thanks
