Lua - communicating with "the oudside world"

Hi
First of all, I am completely new in Lua-programing but I have some experience in other languages like C, C++, C#, Java, PHP.

My question is: Is it possible with the LotrO LUA to communicate with other applications e.g. create a TCP connection or write/read files?

At the moment the only way to communicate is reading and writing files in PluginData folder. Content of the file has to be formatted as a Lua script. There's also a delay with reading and writing, so only the first load when the plugin started is instantaneous. However, there are ways around it.

Yeah you probably will never see UTP or HTTP communication become available, as we are all pressing to keep Plugins like Auctioneer and Raider off the list of tools.

What's wrong with Auctioneer?
