Exactly what I said:
not string.len()

They gave the shorthand example if you have an instance of string named s, too.
s:len() (they didn't write string.len() for a reason..)

Declaration: function MyObj.myfunc(self, param1,param2) end
Usage: MyObj.myfunc(MyObj, foo, bar)
or: MyObj:myfunc(foo,bar)

however >
Declaration: function MyObj:myfunc(param1, param2) end

or: MyObj:myfunc(foo,bar)

2 declarations using a different parameter list, but on the stack the functions are the same, 3 arguments, doesnt matter how they called.

"The effect of the colon is to add an extra hidden parameter in a method definition and to add an extra argument in a method call. The colon is only a syntactic facility""

MyObj:myfunc(param1, param2)
IS the definition of myfunc(MyObj, param1, param2)

Even the LUA documentation you linked agrees with me that it is part of the argument. How can it NOT be part of the argument list if you can access it as argument...?
