Hello,

Now that Lua [1] appears as a native scripting language in more [2]  
and more [3] mainstream web servers, here is an example of a web  
server written in Lua:

http://svr225.stepx.com:3388/a

The wiki demo sports content from the 2008/9 Wikipedia Selection,  
containing about 5500 articles, accessible through full text search:

http://svr225.stepx.com:3388/search?q=python

An index, timeline and recent changes navigation is provided to  
facilitate article retrieval:

http://svr225.stepx.com:3388/index/a
http://svr225.stepx.com:3388/date/2008
http://svr225.stepx.com:3388/recent

The wiki content is accessible as an Atom feed:

feed://svr225.stepx.com:3388/search?q=brazil
feed://svr225.stepx.com:3388/index/a
feed://svr225.stepx.com:3388/date/2008
feed://svr225.stepx.com:3388/recent

Or as a WebDAV repository:

dav://svr225.stepx.com:3388/

Kind regards,
