Print table contents onto 1 line?

Asked by

local MyTable = {"Foo", "Fee"}

print(MyTable[1], MyTable[2])

I can do that fine, but what if the script doesn't know how many there are in the table? How do I make it so it prints the entire table onto one line rather than:

Foo Fee

I would have

Foo Fee

I'm guessing it would require some sort of loops so all I've come up with is this:

for x, Table in pairs(MyTable) do
    print(Table) --But how do I keep them all on one line?
end

table.concat!

print(table.concat(myTable," this is inbetween the things"))

for more information, check the wiki page for table.concat

The CompileTable is the solution! It will print as {"Foo","Fee"}

function compileTable(table)
   local index = 1
   local holder = "{"
   while true do
      if type(table[index]) == "function" then
         index = index + 1
      elseif type(table[index]) == "table" then
         holder = holder..compileTable(table[index])
      elseif type(table[index]) == "number" then
         holder = holder..tostring(table[index])
      elseif type(table[index]) == "string" then
         holder = holder.."\""..table[index].."\""
      elseif table[index] == nil then
         holder = holder.."nil"
      elseif type(table[index]) == "boolean" then
         holder = (table[index] and "true" or "false")
      end
      if index + 1 > #table then
        break
      end
      holder = holder..","
      index = index + 1
   end
   return holder.."}"
end

local compiledTable = compileTable(MyTable)
print(compiledTable)
