I think you have it right, the matches table is overwritten when a new alias is called, so you need to save the relevant values before you call expandAlias.

I fixed this my making matches local like this:

Code: Select all

local myMatches = matches
for i = 1, tonumber(myMatches[2]) do
	expandAlias(myMatches[3])
end
Perhaps this could be put in the package above at the start of this thread?

Thanks!

Patched and tested, seems to work as desired.
