[Lua] Error when automatically creating a table

Recommended Posts

I am making a text-based Minesweeper for lua, and I am using Tables for graphics.
This is what I use to initialize it:
[code]for i = 1, 16 do
a = {a[i]}
a[i] = G

However, I get this error:
[code]lua: Minesweeper.lua:7: attempt to index global 'a' (a nil value)
stack traceback:
Minesweeper.lua:7: in main chunk
[C]: ?
>Exit code: 1[/code]

As far as I can tell, my code should be correct.
Can someone please correct my idiotic code? Haven't programmed in about a year.

Looks like a is undefined.

you have to define a somewhere atleast like this


that creates a new table called a, in global namespace.

local a={}

will create one in local namespace..

Good Luck!
