lua table of all characters

In Lua, you can create a table of all characters by utilizing the string library. Here are the steps to achieve this:

  1. Start by creating an empty table to store the characters: lua local characters = {}

  2. Use a loop to iterate through the ASCII values of characters from 0 to 255: lua for i = 0, 255 do local char = string.char(i) characters[i] = char end

  3. Now, the characters table will contain all the ASCII characters. Each character is stored at its corresponding ASCII value index.

  4. You can access a specific character from the table using its ASCII value as the index. For example, to retrieve the character 'A' (ASCII value 65), you can use: lua local charA = characters[65]

  5. To print all the characters in the table, you can use a loop: lua for i = 0, 255 do print(characters[i]) end

That's it! Following these steps will allow you to create a Lua table containing all the characters.
