Run external programs in OpenResty without spawning a shell

$ luarocks install lua-resty-exec

A small Lua module for executing processes. It's primarily intended to be used with OpenResty, but will work in regular Lua applications as well. When used with OpenResty, it's completely non-blocking (otherwise it falls back to using LuaSocket and does block).

It's similar to (and inspired by) lua-resty-shell, the primary difference being this module uses sockexec, which doesn't spawn a shell - instead you provide an array of argument strings, which means you don't need to worry about shell escaping/quoting/parsing rules.

This requires your web server to have an active instance of sockexec[1] running.
