Lua strategies

AOFlagger flagging strategies are written in the Lua language. Lua is quite a simple language, and if you know Python, Lua will feel quite familiar.

In Lua, comments start with two dashes “--”, if and for blocks end with an end statement, and class methods can be called with either

object.method(object, parameter1, parameter2)


object:method(parameter1, parameter2)
