The application loads the whole lua file. Then the application parses it.
Actually this test that I am doing is reading a file from my own computer, I just have a adaptor class that simulates a network transfer and load a local file.

The problem isnt network transfering, the test is reading a file from my computer, opening it using fopen storing all the content on a const char* buffer and passing it to lua.

parsing a lua lib file sounds like incremental parsing.

why not send the source one file at a time then the calling code
as the last?
