RE: Updated roadmap

I would vote again for a serial module!
At least, for Linux!

As chrimo said, luax had it and Asko Kauppi was going to port it to luarocks anytime but not yet. He had some newer code available at svn://slugak.dyndns.org/public/2007 under Serial. Unfortunately it is way above my head.

In my case, I am building an small Linux image that boots a Xvesa server and acts as an AVL (automatic vehicle locator) device. The app itself is written in Lua, and I am looking forward to make it murgaLua. The nice stuff is that it all fits in a 24mb image and run under 32mb RAM... and there may be still some shrinking to do.

Since there is no working serial for lua (very close to, but nothing buildable by mortals like me), I am using socat to convert serial to sockets, and then use copas. I found no other way to accessing serial ports in a non-blocking way. It is a pity, since Lua is THE natural language to deal with GPSs, GPRS modems, etc.
