A command line tool for uploading and installing from the public Lua module hosting site, LuaRocks.
This tool is no longer necessary as this functionality has been added to the main LuaRocks tool.

install is a simple wrapper for running
luarocks install, except that it
--server=http://rocks.moonscript.org to the argument list, ensuring
that MoonRocks is checked as a module source.
For example, the following two commands are equivalent:

moonrocks upload <rockspec>
upload will upload a rockspec to the server. If the module doesn't exist yet
it will be created, if it already exists the new version will be added to it.
If a version for that rockspec already exists then you will be prompted to

That rock will also be uploaded along with the rockspec. (This creates a src
rock). If you don't wish to pack and upload a rock then include the flag
