Usage edit

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.

Examples edit

print ("Hello")

The newline is automatic edit

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 newline edit

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