Lua Programming/How to Lua/print


print ( [ LIST ] )Edit

The print function is variadic and is used to produce simple standardized output. A comma separated list of items for output is provided in the argument list.


print ("Hello")

The newline is automaticEdit

In lua, the print function automatically outputs a newline, so there is no need to embed a newlineescape sequence into the output string.

Supression of the automatic newlineEdit

The write command provides the same functionality as the print function, but does not automatically output the newline character.
