Class: (global)

Description

Calls function f with the given arguments in protected mode. This means that any error inside f is not propagated; instead, pcall catches the error and returns a status code. Its first result is the status code (a boolean), which is true if the call succeeds without errors. In such case, pcall also returns all results from the call, after this first result. In case of any error, pcall returns false plus the error message.

(bool), (any) = pcall(f,arg1,arg2,...)

Parameters

f: (function) function to call in protected mode
arg1: (any) argument to pass to the function optional
arg2: (any) argument to pass to the function optional
...: (any) other optional arguments optional

Return values

Returns (bool) false if there was error, true if function call succeeded
Returns (any) all the results that function returns
