Libraries and tools for Lua

Here are my libraries and tools for Lua. They are simple to install and use, but read detailed instructions anyway. Check a package's release data (version, date, size, checksum) to make sure you have the latest version of the package for your version of Lua. All packages available here are released under this license. Please drop me a line if you use one of my packages. All feedback is welcome. Enjoy.
