Network socket extension for Lua

LuaSocket is a Lua extension library that is composed by two parts: a C core that provides support for the TCP and UDP transport layers, and a set of Lua modules that add support for functionality commonly needed by applications that deal with the Internet.

The core support has been implemented so that it is both efficient and simple to use. It is available to any Lua application once it has been properly initialized by the interpreter in use. The code has been tested and runs well on several Windows and Unix platforms.

Among the support modules, the most commonly used implement the SMTP (sending e-mails), HTTP (WWW access) and FTP (uploading and downloading files) client protocols. These provide a very natural and generic interface to the functionality defined by each protocol. In addition, you will find that the MIME (common encodings), URL (anything you could possible want to do with one) and LTN12 (filters, sinks, sources and pumps) modules can be very handy.

Package version:2.0.2


This is the LuaSocket 2.0.1. It has been tested on WinXP, Mac OS X,
and Linux.  Please use the Lua mailing list to report any bugs 
(or "features") you encounter. 

Have fun,

LuaSocket. This code is not supported.

    listener.lua            -- socket to stdout
    talker.lua              -- stdin to socket

listener.lua and talker.lua are about  the simplest
applications you can write  using  LuaSocket.  Run   

	'lua listener.lua'  and  'lua talker.lua'

on different terminals. Whatever you type on talk.lua will
