rawset( tbl, member, value )
Write to a table member, bypassing metamethods
tbl
The table whose member to modify.

member
The member to modify.

value

When creating things like class objects, one often overrides metamethods like __index and __newindex with custom code, but might then need to write directly to the table without going through those overrides. This can be done with rawset().
