Hi Diego,

Thanks for your valuable inputs.

I want LuaSocket always loaded when I run the interpreter. But for
testing purposes I want LuaSocket to be loaded only when a script calls

For this I need below things.
1)package.preload table & contents.
2)How to make an entry of this table.
3)in which file I have to include this table.
4)package.preload table contents. 

Could you please help in providing the above information.  

Thanks & Regards,

If you still have access to socket.lua, mime.lua and its friends through
the filesystem, this is the way to go.

If you won't have a filesystem, you need to take a look at luac and
bin2c. These allow you to turn a .lua file into a .c file, which you can
compile and link with your monolythic executable.

The other decision you have to make is whether you care if LuaSocket is
always loaded when you run the interpreter, or if you want it to be
loaded only when a script calls require(). If the latter is important,
you will have to use the package.preload table.
