I have a half-baked Lua binding for YAMI . YAMI is a truly light weight
RPC library written in 'C' and has worked for me very well in building a
distributed system. I bridged the HTTP world with YAMI by writing a PHP
binding for YAMI. With this binding I can marshal PHP arrays (a misnomer for
tables I think) and un-marshall in the C++ domain and vice versa.
Long time ago I also started down the path of creating a module in Lua for
the MBUS spec . Somehow I have never managed to get official sponsorship
for any of my Lua projects which is a pity. So, all of my Lua projects
remain in limbo.
To get to the point, I would definitely be interested in a simple Lua based
RPC module that has low impedance encoding/decoding across C, C++, PHP,
