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 the SMTP (sending e-mails), HTTP (WWW access) and FTP (uploading and downloading files) protocols and other functionality commonly needed by applications that deal with the Internet.

To add Lua Socket support to your application you call:
socket = require("socket.core")
local socket = require("socket.core") client = socket.connect("google.com", 80) client:send("GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n") while true do s, status, partial = client:receive(1024) print(s or partial) if status == "closed" then break end end client:close()
