$ sudo port -v install lua luarocks
I installed LuaSocket.
$ sudo luarocks install luasocket
I was under the mistaken impression that when I tried to run some example code, the ENVIRONMENT would be setup and functioning properly. Unfortunately this was not the case:
Lua 5.1.4 Copyright (C) 1994-2008 Lua.org, PUC-Rio

After some investigation I'd realized that the LUA_PATH wasn't set up by the packages that were installed. Since I'd installed the LuaSocket package as the administrator (with the sudo command). I needed to include the system-wide path to the rocks libraries. I did this for my user only by editing my .kshrc file. If I'd wanted to do the same thing in bash I could have used .bshrc or .bashrc. To do it for every user of the system I could have use /etc/profile and /etc/login. In any case I put in this line:
After that was included everything ran fine (don't forget to reload your environment.

I am getting this error even i followed the correct path
Please get the solution so that i can work
What OS are you using? If you're on OSX how did you install LUA; with macports, fink, or pkgsrc?ReplyDelete
I need more information before I can help you.
Thanks Cliff for the reply.ReplyDelete
I am using Mac OSX and i install LUA5.1.4 and using pkgsrc I installed.I followed the above solution you have mentioned for sockets it is working fine.
But when I run test.lua file which comes from luasoap I am getting the error that
ua: /usr/local/share/lua/5.1//soap/http.lua:7: module ‘luasocket’ not found:
Please let me know the solutions it is urgent.
Unfortunately luasoap wasn't setup as a rocks package. The installation isn't quite as straight forward as other packages. Without being on your box the best thing I can suggest is to try loading the test file with lua -lluasockets or make a copy of test.lua and modify it to explicitly set package.path. I know neither of these are ideal solutions but they should get you up an running without having to go back an forth with me asking you a million more question about your set up.ReplyDelete
If you can invoke lua -lluasockets with no problem then you should be able to get the test.lua script running with no problem.
Best of luck, please let me know if there is something more I can do for you.
btw.. you might want to ask in #lua on freenode (IRC). I'm often in there (gcw) and the people there are very knowledgeable.
I need to know whether any examples are present for luasoap so that i can have a better understanding.
Sorry I've never used luasoap before.. I'm sure that you can google examples or ask in either IRC or on the mailing list. Wish I could be of more help.ReplyDelete
Hey thanks Cliff for the replyReplyDelete
i found solution for the luasoap it is working fine here
I worked on the link below to find the solution This link is help full
Thanks & bye.
Have you been able to get lua-socket to run on Snow Leopard?ReplyDelete
I get symbol not found errors against the core.so shared library, and a good hour of Googling has not helped.
it's been working for me with no problem. A few questions for youReplyDelete
1) are you using the MacPorts installation
2) if so did you go through the migration steps?
3) are you using luarocks 1.x or 2.x?
