Pass argument/parameter into a script/programm?


How can I pass an argument into a lua script in OC?

I read that in "normal" lua you can use arg[1], arg[2],... or arg1, arg2,... for it but it is not working for me with OC. Tried to requiere arg but it didn't find a library called "arg". Is there a way to pass an argument to a OC script? Basically I just want to use the parameter as the number a for loop should run.

Thanks in advance and best regards Jonas

You need to capture the args into variables in your script like so..

local args = {...}
 -- like so. dont forget to use tonumber(args[x]) as all args are passed as type 'string' from the shell
print(args[1], args[2], args[3])
