Not a foldit recipe. LuaHelp2Help is a standalone Lua script, used as a step in producing the "Foldit Lua Functions" page on the wiki. This script takes the output of the "help()" command in foldit as its input.

First step in producing "Foldit Lua Functions" wikia page

LuaHelp2Help is not a Foldit recipe. It should produce a polite message stating this fact if you run it from your cookbook.

This a standalone Lua script, so you must have Lua installed separately from Foldit to run.

This script takes the output of the Foldit "help()" command and transforms it into a series of "help" commands, one per Lua function. In other words, LuaHelp2Help produces something you can run as Foldit recipe.

When you run the output from LuaHelp2Help in Foldit, the resulting output can be fed into the next stage, LuaFunctions, which is another standalone Lua script.

Due to problems with the "help", some manual fixes are needed to get the desired results.

See for more details.
