  boolean debug.setmetatable( any object, table metatable )


We advise against using this. It may be changed or removed in a future update.

Sets the object's metatable. Unlike setmetatable, this function works regardless of whether the first object passed is a valid table or not; this function even works on primitive datatypes such as numbers, functions, and even nil.


1 any object
Object to set the metatable for.
2 table metatable
The metatable to set for the object. If this argument is nil, then the object's metatable is removed.


1 boolean
true if the object's metatable was set successfully.
