README

This is a collection of Lua 5.1 modules I've written.  Yes, they include
functionality found in other Lua modules like luasockets and luaposix.  I
wrote these not to reinvent the wheel (although I did) but to learn how to
program in Lua.  As such, I do find these modules useful and actually prefer
them to such modules as luasockets and luaposix. 

Now, because of the functionality overlap of some of these modules with
existing Lua modules, I decided to place them under a name that I know won't
conflict with existing modules.  I took a play out of the Java playbook and
placed all these modules under the "org.conman" table.

	readable types and back again.

	Some useful string functions (includes org.conman.strcore).

org.conman.table
	Some useful table functions.

org.conman.net.ios
	Implements an API similar to the Lua's file object API, but with
	callbacks to obtain the data.

org.conman.net.tcp
	A module to turn a TCP connection into something that mimics the
	Lua's file:read()/file:write()/etc. API.

org.conman.nfl
	An event driven framework to manage network based connections via
	coroutines.  

org.conman.nfl.tcp
	A module, with a similar API to org.conman.net.tcp, to manage
	TCP connections via coroutines in an event driven environment.

org.conman.nfl.tls
	A module, with a similar API to org.conman.net.tcp, to manage
	TLS-based connections via coroutines in an event driven environment.
