JPType is a small but very useful pack allowing you to know the type of any LUA variable.
Like LUA variables are untyped, they can contain any value, that's sometimes a problem when trying to do operation between 2 incompatible variables or when passing a parameter with a wrong type to a function of the API
Thanks to JPType, you can now know what is the type of a variable, for instance string, boolean, number etc.
JPType is available for free!
- ShiVa 1.9.2 or greater
- LUA project (not compatible with full c++ projects, compatible with LUA projects that use c++ plugins)
