Hi, I'm writing a program with lua. I have data that organized in the following way: t= {i1{p1{,,,},p2{,,,},{,,,}},i2{p1{,,,},p2{,,,},{,,,}},...,in{p1{,,,},p2{,,,},{,,,}}} (inner tables) In another way each group of data is indexed by two variables i&p,I am sure that the data is kept correctly but I want a way to print the data from their tables because I won't know the values of i and p to iterate over them or even the numbers n & m any body know how to do this with lua?

Unfortunately off topic. You've asked a general Lua programming question as opposed to a Wireshark Lua question. Skilled Lua developers at stackoverflow are waiting to answer your question. :-)

the program process data that coming from wireshark, the i is a source ip address and p is the port number and the data in the innermost table are destination ips

Ok, I see, but it's still off topic unless the data can only be printed with the help of Wireshark Lua, which isn't true in your case because the source IP is just a string, and the port number is just an integer. (Hint: you're looking to dump a Lua's rather trivial to do...just Google it)
