Have you looked under luasocket/etc, sample and test directory? There are quite a few usage examples there, no?

Had not looked there. Not sure if this is because at the moment I am working on a Windows PC, the only examples I see are under here:
C:\Program Files\Lua\5.1\examples\luasocket
and I didn't find any "etc/" directory there.

Also, the only examples seem to be fairly simple ones (as far as the network programming aspects are concerned), though quite short and elegant ones at that. I am lookingly for slightly more elaborate / real-life examples of some real-life TCP based (hopefuly binary) application protocol implementation.
