Example 2: Server
function outputAdminGroupAccounts( player )
    local admins = {} -- creates the table in which will be added the accounts of "Admin" group
    local group = aclGetGroup( "Admin" )
    -- should return the "aclgroup" if the "Admin" group be found in ACL
    if (group) then
        for _, object in ipairs(aclGroupListObjects(group) or {}) do
            local objType = gettok( object, 1, string.byte('.') )
            -- objType: gets the object type only, which can be either "user" or "resource"
            if (objType == "user") then -- checks if it's a player account
                local _name = gettok( object, 2, string.byte('.') ) -- ignores "user." by separating that from the account name
                table.insert( admins, _name ) -- adds the account name to the "admins" table
            end
        end
    end
    for i, name in ipairs(admins) do -- loop through the table "admins"
        outputChatBox(tostring(i).." : "..tostring(name), player, 140, 220, 140)
        -- output will look like this: "1 : John"
    end
end
addCommandHandler("getAdminAccounts", outputAdminGroupAccounts)
-- adds the command "getAdminAccounts" and attaches it to the function "outputAdminGroupAccounts"
