Building up a raw telnet variable and accessing wildcards in #LUA
 
Hello,

I had two questions that I'd love answered -- 1. Can you build up a raw telnet sequence to send to the server? i.e.
Code:
$msdpReportableVariables = $msdpReportableVariables%char(2)HEALTH;#sendsb 69 $msdpReportableVariables
. I did try the above code but it doesn't seem to work.

2. Can you access the %wildcards from a pattern in #LUA{}?

Thanks!

Nothing says you have to code entirely in Lua, you could easily just stick the lua you need inside a #LUA command, and use zscript for the rest, if you wanted.

I would use the %concat function to properly string them all together into a CMUD variable, which you can then access via lua code as zs.var.varName

Use: zs.param(n)
To reference the captured bits in a trigger.

I'm a bit confused. %concat still doesn't seem to create the end variable correctly. As an example, I'm trying to create a variable that starts with
Code:
%69 %char(1)REPORT
. Then, it iterates through a stringlist variable via #FORALL and should concat
Code:
%char(2)%i
. Finally, it should #sendsb the built variable.

I realize that #LUA {} works; however, I'm not sure how to access a wildcard from there. For example, a wildcard from a trigger whose match is in %2.

$var=%concat("%69 %char(1)REPORT", %expandlist(@someVar), "%char(2)%i")

See '#HELP %expandlist' to get it to spit out formatting how you want it.

use zs.param(2) to access %2 in lua
