Please post in plain text, and write your replies below selective  

The substitution feature is something I wrote for MudWalker; it's  
just a very simple wrapper around normal Lua syntax.

The ordinary-Lua version of my example is:

send(arg[1] .. ",\"" .. arg[2] .. "\"")

This is a series of string concatenations and the "send" function,  
which is specific to MudWalker, and sketchily documented in MudWalker  
Help (which doesn't mention that in this case it goes neither inward  
nor outward, but rather into the substitution result).

For learning Lua, I don't have any specific recommendations; I'd just  
search for "lua tutorial" and start reading.
