I found the thread you were referring to [1]. Actually, I was
mistaken. The library I was thinking of was LuaTask [2]. LuaTask
hasn't been updated in ~4 years and it's the library I was having a
lot of problems with.

In any case, I haven't used LuaTask or LuaThread in Lua 5.2.


darn, I got my hopes up when your post said you got it working :-)

And im at lua 5.1 now with no plans to take the project over to 5.2 any time soon.

Yes, unfortunately they both just use coroutines and not like LuaThread actually gives me simultaneous threads that share a lua state .

Well, if none got LuaThread I guess I'd better look elsewere for a solution. The only other I have seen sofar is lanes/linda.
If anyone has a better suggestion I'm game.

The project is a kind of communication hub connected to anything from 0 to 2k+ users at a time, some kind of multi threading feels like a must :D
