    This is the documentation page for Module:OutputBuffer

    This module provides an easy and efficient way to generate lengthy strings.

    Usage

    First, load the module.

    local newBuffer = require('Module:OutputBuffer')
    

    Then, create the buffer and the functions that act on it.

    local getBuffer, print, printf = newBuffer()
    

    getBuffer

    local text = getBuffer(sep)
    

    Returns the contents of the buffer, with an optional separator string sep.

    print

    print(s)
    

    Adds the string s to the buffer.

    printf

    printf(s, ...)
    

    Adds the string s to the buffer. The string is formatted with any subsequent arguments, following the rules used for string.format.

    Example

    local newBuffer = require('Module:OutputBuffer')
    local p = {}
    
    function p.main()
    	local getBuffer, print, printf = newBuffer()
    	print('Welcome to the English Wikipedia.')
    	printf('There are currently %d articles on this site.', mw.site.stats.articles)
    	return getBuffer(' ')
    end
    
    return p
    
    -- Assuming this module's name is "TestModule", and that mw.site.stats.articles returns 4500000,
    -- {{#invoke:TestModule|main}} would output:
    -- "Welcome to the English Wikipedia. There are currently 4500000 articles on this site."
