 +===Array of arrays===
 +An array with 10 entries each containing 2 entries:
 +<code>
 +  int num = 10;
 +  int sz = 2;
 +  
 +  lua_createtable(L, num, 0);
 +  int toptop = lua_gettop(L);
 +
 +  for(int i = 1; i <= num; i++) {
 +    lua_createtable(L, 0, sz);
 +    int top = lua_gettop(L);
 +
 +    for(int j = 1; j <= sz; j++) {
 +      char buf[10];
 +      sprintf(buf, "%d-%d", i, j);
 +      lua_pushstring(L, buf);
 +      lua_rawseti(L, top, j);
 +    }
 +
 +    lua_rawseti(L, toptop, i);
 +  }
 +
 +  return 1;
 +</code>
 +
 +===Fields (maps)===
 +<code lua>
 +foo = {}
 +foo.hello = 'world'
 +foo.bar = {}
 +foo.bar.ping = 'pong'
 +foo.bar.bas = {}
 +foo.bar.bas.ding = 'ring'
 +</code>
 +
 +Corresponds to:
 +<code c>
 +int foo, bar, bas;
 +
 +// Create global 'foo'
 +lua_newtable(L);
 +lua_setglobal(L, "foo");
 +
 +// Set foo.hello = 'world'
 +lua_getglobal(L, "foo");
 +foo = lua_gettop(L);
 +lua_pushstring(L, "world");
 +lua_setfield(L, foo, "hello");
 +
 +// Create 'bar' in 'foo'
 +lua_getglobal(L, "foo");
 +foo = lua_gettop(L);
 +lua_newtable(L);
 +lua_setfield(L, foo, "bar");
 +
 +// Set foo.bar.ping = 'pong'
 +lua_getglobal(L, "foo");
 +foo = lua_gettop(L);
 +lua_getfield(L, foo, "bar");
 +bar = lua_gettop(L);
 +lua_pushstring(L, "pong");
 +lua_setfield(L, bar, "ping");
 +
 +// Create 'bas' in 'foo.bar'
 +lua_getglobal(L, "foo");
 +foo = lua_gettop(L);
 +lua_getfield(L, foo, "bar");
 +bar = lua_gettop(L);
 +lua_newtable(L);
 +lua_setfield(L, bar, "bas");
 +
 +// Set foo.bar.bas.ding = 'ring'
 +lua_getglobal(L, "foo");
 +foo = lua_gettop(L);
 +lua_getfield(L, foo, "bar");
 +bar = lua_gettop(L);
 +lua_getfield(L, bar, "bas");
 +bas = lua_gettop(L);
 +lua_pushstring(L, "ding");
 +lua_setfield(L, bas, "ring");
 +
 +lua_pop(L, 1); // pop 'foo' off the stack.
