A networking suite for LuaJIT2 and Linux, optimized for performance.

$ luarocks install turbo

Turbo.lua is just another framework to create network programs for Linux. It uses kernel
event polling to manage network connections instead of the traditional concurency models that employ
threads. As it does not use threads, no locks, mutexes or other bad things are required. It solves the
same issues as Node.js, Tornado etc. except it solves it with Lua. A simple, yet powerful language that
fits nicely with the event polling model with its builtin coroutines.
