\writestatus{loading}{ConTeXt Lua Macros / Socket Libraries}

%D In \LUATEX\ we provide the socket library that is more or less the standard one
%D for \LUA. It has been around for a while and seems to be pretty stable. The
%D binary module is copmpiled into \LUATEX\ and the accompanying .lua files are
%D preloaded. These files are mostly written by Diego Nehab, Andre Carregal, Javier
%D Guerra, and Fabio Mascarenhas with contributions from Diego Nehab, Mike Pall,
%D David Burgess, Leonardo Godinho, Thomas Harning Jr., and Gary NG. The originals
%D are part of and copyrighted by the Kepler project.
%D Here we reload a slightly reworked version of these \type {.lua} files. We keep
%D the same (documented) interface but streamlined some fo the code. No more
%D modules, no more pre 5.2 \LUA, etc. Also, as it loads into the \CONTEXT
%D ecosystem, we plug in some logging. (and maybe tracing in the future). As we
%D don't support serial ports in \LUATEX, related code has been dropped.
%D The files are reformatted so that we can more easilly add additional features
%D and|/|or tracing options. Any error introduced there is our fault! The url module
%D might be replaced by the one in \CONTEXT. When we need mbox a suitable variant
%D will be provided.

%D Currently we preload the related \LUA\ code in \LUATEX, but that might change at
%D some point. We're prepared for that.
