I have to construct deeply nested tables and sometimes lose track of what is at what level of my table, so I was wondering if there was an easy way of visualizing a nested table. On the web, you can find a number of (mostly abandoned) projects; the one at http://siffiejoe.github.io/lua-microscope/ says: "Many Lua programmers have written their own pretty-printer or data dumper and some even use it for (de-)serializing Lua data structures.” So I was wondering if any of the Lua users here on the list has something they want to share.

\startluacode
context.tocontext(yourtable)
\stopluaxcode
