Hi all i have commands in my server that should have an arg that is a player nickname

My problem is that i have to type the nickname exactly same the player's nickname.

I saw other servers that you just type (example) "t/loc Joao" and the script gets my full name that is (example) "|SS|Joao|F"

I searched the wiki already but how can i get the player's nick with approximated name?

i understand u use this function

  
function findPlayer(player) 
       if player and type(player) == "string" then 
                local plr = getPlayerFromName 
                if plr then return plr end 
                 local pC = 0 
                 local player = string.lower(player) 
                 local spl = split(player, string.byte("[")) 
                   if spl then 
                            player = table.contact(spl, ";") 
                     end 
                      for k, v in ipairs(getElementsByType("player") do 
                           local nam = string.lower(getPlayerName(v) 
                          local spl = split(nam, string.byte("[")) 
                         if spl then 
                                   nam = table.contact(spl, ";") 
                         end 
if string.find(name, player) then plr = v pC = pC  + 1 
end 
end 
if plr and pC == 1 then 
return plr 
end 
return false 
else return false 
end 
end  
  
  
  
--- copy this function and use it like this 
-- player = findPlayer(partOfPlayerName)

Edited some things that were error like "no elements in the function getPlayerFromName" and "table concat instead of table contact

but still not working

  
function findPlayer(player) 
       if (player and type(player) == "string") then 
                local plr = getPlayerFromName(player) 
                if (plr ~= false) then return plr end 
                 local pC = 0 
                 local player = string.lower(player) 
                 local spl = split(player, string.byte("[")) 
                   if spl then 
                            player = table.concat(spl, ";") 
                     end 
                      for k, v in ipairs(getElementsByType("player")) do 
                           local nam = string.lower(getPlayerName(v)) 
                          local spl = split(nam, string.byte("[")) 
                         if spl then 
                                   nam = table.concat(spl, ";") 
                         end 
if string.find(name, player) then plr = v pC = pC  + 1 
end 
end 
if plr and pC == 1 then 
return plr 
end 
return false 
else return false 
end 
end

function findPlayer ( pName ) 
  
    if not pName then return end -- Make sure we have a name to look for 
  
    local players = {} -- Create a table in case of finding more than 1 player with the matching name 
  
    for k, element in ipairs ( getElementsByType ( "player") ) do -- start looping the players and check the name against their name 
      
        local name = getPlayerName ( element ) -- Get their name 
  
        if string.find ( name, pName ) then -- Check it against the name we are looking for 
            table.insert ( players, element ) -- Save it into our table 
        end 
      
    end 
  
    if #players > 1 then -- If found more than 1, return the whole table with the players matching the name 
        return players 
    elseif #players == 1 then -- If we found only one, return that single element 
        return players [ 1 ] 
    else -- we haven`t found anything, return false 
        return false 
    end 
  
end
