My problem is that a timeout resolution of a 1 second is way too coarse.
It would mean that if there was no data available to receive, the
simulator would stop for a full second after every simulation frame.
Luasocket's timeout is a Lua number, i.e. a double/float. So, you can use smaller values than 1.
Is there are a way to configure select() turn return _instantly_ if there
is no data available?
Yes, use a zero timeout value.
In the description for settimeout() there is this :
"Note: although timeout values have millisecond precision in
Does this mean that settimeout() will accept fractional second values
such as settimeout(.10) as being valid for a 1/10th of a second timeout?
Yes. Why don't you simply try it out? The timeout mechanism has been part of Luasocket for quite a while now... And it works splendidly.
