Editing a layout by an extra file

Hello,

i like to edit a layout by writing my changes into an extra file.

So i.e. the layout i want to edit uses a file called unitframes.lua for the style of the unitframes.
inside that file there is a function called: local styleFunc(self, unit) ... where i can find code like self.Health.value = ...

now i want to create an extra file to edit this health value. but how can i achieve this? How can i modify the styleFunc function?

I hope my idea is clear enough described (if not, just ask).

Tia

EDIT: Just found a solution... I'll edit the frames by oUF_Player.Health.value = ...

I see you already found a solution, but to give a technical answer for this question:

You can't. If a name (eg. "styleFunc") is local to one file, you can't access it from another file. It's also not possible to modify a function in Lua; you can overwrite it with another function, but you can't just change the code inside the same function.
