It’s a “standalone module” (e.g. run a basic TCP server configured directly from the command line) that I am after.
If you need a main file that exists only to do something like...
...then tcpserver.lua is not acting as a tandalone module, it’s just a regular module module.
It would be nice to be able to say something like...
lua tcpserver.lua -hexdump 127.0.0.1:8000
...in the case that no special tweaking of the tcpserver functionality is required.
