trying to split a string (New Flood Mod)

Hi I’m trying to use



local TeamPropP = {
}
TeamPropP = split( "Name-Bob-Joe-John-Sam-Steve-Ross", "-")


which is throwing the error


attempt to call global 'split' <a nil value>

I though it could be used according to http://lua-users.org/wiki/SplitJoin
I am used to python’s spit(’-’) function. Could you help me define it using the method to split strings in lua?

Use string.Explode("-", “Name-Bob-Joe-John”)


 
local str = "Hello there kind child"

local tbl = string.Explode( " ", str )

PrintTable( tbl )


Reference - string.Explode wiki

Edit: ninja’d

it works thanks!



local People = {
}
People = string.Explode( "-", "joe-john-sam-steve-ross" )
