Regular API function

simPackTable / sim.packTable

Description Packs a table into a buffer. The table may contain other nested tables, nil, bool, number or string values. All other types (e.g. functions) will be considered as string or nil values. You can also use sim.packTable to quickly compare two tables or to perform a deep copy of a table. See also sim.unpackTable, the other stack functions and the other packing/unpacking functions.
