Summary0000822: 'command' vs 'cmd' confusion in whatsit colorstack node fields
DescriptionFrom Patrick:

(this time it's the flollowing code:

\catcode`\{=1 \catcode`\}=2
for k,v in pairs(node.fields(8,39)) do
% prints '5 cmd'
    c =,39)
    c.cmd = 1

which yields

! LuaTeX error [string "\directlua "]:1: You cannot set field cmd in a node of type whatsit
Additional InformationThe problem is with node.setfield(), which expects 'command' here, instead of 'cmd'. 'cmd' is in the manual, so that is what it should be changed to.
TagsNo tags attached.

"c.cmd" doesn't work anymore (it returns nil, "c.command" should be used instead for getting the value too), even though node.fields still lists it. So it's more than just the manual.
