<h2>Overview</h2>
<p>
LuaSOAP is a library to ease the use of
<a href="http://">SOAP</a>.
LuaSOAP provides a very simple API that convert Lua tables to and from
XML documents.
<p>
LuaSOAP is free software and uses the same
<a href="license.html">license</a>
as Lua 5.0.
</p>
<a name=version>
<h2>Current version</h2>
<p>
Current version is 1.0 beta.
It was developed for Lua 5.0 based on
<a href="http://www.keplerproject.org/luaexpat">LuaExpat</a>.
</p>
<p>
Version 1.0 follows the
<a href="http://www.keplerproject.org/compat">package proposal</a>
for Lua 5.1
(see section <a href="#installation">Installation</a> for more details).
<a name=download>
<h2>Download</h2>
LuaSOAP can be downloaded in source code from the following links: <p>
<blockquote>
<a href="luasoap-1.0b.tar.gz">luasoap-1.0b.tar.gz</a><br>
<a href="luasoap-1.0b.zip">luasoap-1.0b.zip</a>

<h2>What's new</h2>

<li>[4/apr/2004] Version 1.0 alpha released
</ul>
</p>
<a name="installation"></a>
<h2>Installation</h2>
<p>
LuaSOAP is a Lua library composed by two files:
<code>soap.lua</code> and <code>http.lua</code>.
Both must be copied to a directory named <code>soap</code>
created somewhere in your <code>LUA_PATH</code>.
</p>
<p>
LuaSOAP follows the
<a href="http://www.keplerproject.org/compat">package proposal</a>
for Lua 5.1,
therefore this package should be "installed".
In other words,
if you are using Lua 5.0,
the files <tt>compat-5.1.c</tt> and <tt>compat-5.1.h</tt> must be used
in the compilation and the file <tt>compat-5.1.lua</tt> must be installed
in the <tt>LUA_PATH</tt>.
If you are using Lua 5.1,
nothing should be done.
