Running lua code

Is there a command like loadstring()? I want to run user-assigned code. Much like if they ran it in the command bar.

Does Codea even support this?

Search the forum and you’ll find lots of examples

local function()???

@TokOut - you have absolutely no idea what we’re talking about, do you?

There is indeed a loadstring command for executing strings. Lots of examples if you google.

I searched in the forums for loadstring, there was a link for learning lua, and there was a code including local function(), what is that?

@TokOut that is simply making a localized function. Right now that code really doesn’t do much. A localized function can only be ran in the same function/event.

@LuaLlama I think in Lua 5.3 they changed it to just load(lua code in string).
