Hey, so I’m trying to develop a function that takes in a string of numbers, separates each pair of numbers, and returns a table containing actual integers.

To clarify further, I pass in arguments such as…

1,2,4,16,24

In other words, a string of numbers separated by commas. I then call this function to separate that string into pairs of numbers and then return the table of the real numbers.

Here’s my code:

```
local function Get_Ranks(str)
local numbers = {}
local current_number = ""
for i = 1,#str do
if str:sub(i,i) == "," then
table.insert(numbers, tonumber(current_number))
current_number = ""
else
current_number = current_number..str:sub(i,i)
end
end
return numbers
end
```

It works quite nicely, although I can’t figure out why it always cuts off the last number at the end of the string. Any help appreciated, thanks!
