This module causes an error if any nil global is read or if any global is written to, with the exception of arg. To use, add require('Module:No globals') to the top of the module using it. The arg variable is excluded because it is necessary for Scribunto's require function to work properly.


local mt = getmetatable(_G) or {}
function mt.__index (t, k)
	if k ~= 'arg' then
		error('Tried to read nil global ' .. tostring(k), 2)
	end
	return nil
end
function mt.__newindex(t, k, v)
	if k ~= 'arg' then
		error('Tried to write global ' .. tostring(k), 2)
	end
	rawset(t, k, v)
end
setmetatable(_G, mt)
