tostring lua

The tostring function in Lua is used to convert a value to a string. It takes one argument and returns a string representation of that argument. If the argument is already a string, it returns the argument unchanged. If the argument is a number, it returns a string representing that number. If the argument is a table, tostring returns a string in the format "table: address", where address is the memory address of the table.

Here's an example:

local value1 = 10
local value2 = "hello"
local value3 = {1, 2, 3}

print(tostring(value1))  -- Output: "10"
print(tostring(value2))  -- Output: "hello"
print(tostring(value3))  -- Output: "table: address"
