I recently downloaded LuaSocket and started a small project to help me learn lua.
So I took an old perl project I did a few years back and started porting it and adding
For the network (web) piece I ran into a problem connecting to an IIS web server.
On execution I get an error from the remote server about the request verb bad.
A couple of things to note:
After a bit of googling I found one post on a forum that
suggested some versions of IIS are picky about headers
so this lead me to change header casing in the adjustheaders function.
It was also suggested to add a simple function to adjust the header casing
from lower to capitalize.. Just above the adjustheaders I added a function for this
and I'm still getting the, "request verb being bad".
Below is the code in question:
Does anyone see anything out of the obvious?

local http = require("socket.http")
local io = require("io")
local ltn12 = require("ltn12")

UserID = "userID=XXXXX"
CharID = "characterID=XXXXXXX"
--Lame I know... 
reqbody = UserID.."&"..APIKey.."&"..CharID

http.request {
   method = "POST",
   url = "" href="">",
   headers= {
            ["Content-Type"] = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded",
            ["Content-Length"] = string.len(reqbody),
   source = ltn12.source.string(reqbody),
   sink = ltn12.sink.file(io.stdout)
