DFHack: LUA woes
« on: March 16, 2015, 04:21:11 pm »

I've a script in the hack/scripts (add-syndromes) directory that require a file (syndrome-util) in the hack/lua directory, which in turn requies another file (utils) in the hack/lua directory.  When I try to run add-syndromes, I get the error:

...workDF V6.2\Dwarf Fortress\hack\scripts/add-syndrome.lua:6: attempt to call field 'invert' (a nil value)
stack traceback:
        ...workDF V6.2\Dwarf Fortress\hack\scripts/add-syndrome.lua:6: in main chunk
        (...tail calls...)

I've confirmed that invert is a function defined in utils.lua.

What am I doing wrong?

Lua, not LUA.

It's trying to call "invert" rather than "utils.invert".

I'm afraid that's not it.  I should have quoted the code:

--usage: syndromeUtil.ResetPolicy.DoNothing, syndromeUtil.ResetPolicy.ResetDuration, etc
ResetPolicy = ResetPolicy or utils.invert({
"DoNothing",
"ResetDuration",
"AddDuration",
"NewInstance"
})

(Please note I take no credit for this code!)

Did you just copy the code from 0.40.24 to 0.34.11? I'm not sure if that'll work. utils.invert wasn't added until later.

That may be it.  I'll see if the latest version of DFHack works with MDF.  Thanks.

utils.invert was added in DFHack 0.40.08-r1: https://github.com/DFHack/dfhack/commit/0db0244d08e69eb36c0f31700c76b2de83fbc4ef
You could easily implement that function in your script, though:
Code: [Select]
function invert(tab)
    local result = {}
    for k,v in pairs(tab) do
        result[v]=k
    end
    return result
end
