I'm making a lua push table function and I require assistance.

Recommended Posts

Well I need to push a table on to the lua stack but I'm unsure how to do this, the function I'm trying to make takes the address of an array, the number of bytes per element in the array and the size of the array. It then creates a table from the c++ array but I can't get it to work right, any ideas would be most appreciated. Here is what I have so far:
void lua_pushtable( lua_State *L, void* data, int stride, int size )
{
	lua_newtable(L);
	for( int i = 0; i < size; i = i + stride )
	{
		double value = NULL;
		memcpy( &value, &((byte*)data)[i], stride );
		lua_pushnumber( L, i );
		lua_pushnumber( L, value );
		lua_settable( L, -3 );
	}
	lua_pop( L, 1 );
}
