How to turn string value into table value

so for example i have a string value like, “8741”

and i wanted to turn it into a table like,
{8, 7, 4, 1}

how can i achieve this with code?

You can use the string.split function with a blank string as the separator:

local text = "8741"

local stringAsTable = string.split(text, "")


Use a string iterator function and convert the the character into a number with tonumber(), then insert it into your table with table.insert().

If you don’t know how to iterate over a string, you can find it on the internet easily with one quick search.
