LUA code changes &parm to ¶m. Even if het is in a string! This happens in a VD.



In a virtual device i have this lua code:  (temp contains a temperature from a sensor)

local opdrachtje='/json.htm?type=command&idx=58&'..'param=udevice&svalue='..temp;
When i debug the code the result is:
[DEBUG] 16:08:46: /json.htm?type=command&idx=58¶m=udevice&svalue=23.8
at first i had this code
local opdrachtje='/json.htm?type=command&idx=58&param=udevice&svalue='..temp;
After a save the code changed to 
local opdrachtje='/json.htm?type=command&idx=58¶m=udevice&svalue='..temp;
Clearly &para or &param has some kind of meaning in LUA.
Do i have to use escape codes and which one?
Is there an other reason this goes wrong? 

PS. I use a HC2!

Hi @Ravaoo ,


When debug prints stored string then browser replaces &para to paragraph character ¶ since ¶ represents that character in HTML. Ampersand & is used in html to start of a character reference.  You can use & as that will be replaced with ampersand & character:
