print ( [ LIST ] )
The print function is variadic and is used to produce simple standardized output. A comma separated list of items for output is provided in the argument list.
The newline is automatic
In lua, the print function automatically outputs a newline, so there is no need to embed a newlineescape sequence into the output string.
Supression of the automatic newline
The write command provides the same functionality as the print function, but does not automatically output the newline character.
