Never seen that, but I remain interested to know if somebody can show
me a reproduction.

What's the protocol?

Code is based off unix.c, too bad there isn't a better way to avoid
the code duplication, but
I don't want to disturb the luasocket code base too much, I still have
hopes Diego will merge at least the obvious
bug fixes, if not the features.

Using a serial device also requires setting its modes, for that I have
bindings to termios, that I should be able
to put up on github, too. Of course, you can always set those with stty.
