It only works because it silently discards the https: and replaces it with http: . Actually, it disregards what is in front of // completely, whatever it is. Even: url = "foobar://www.ntg.nl/watistex.html" works just 'fine'. Anyway, perhaps someone can answer me this? I tried the ffi/curl code, and the network stuff works, but only when I comment out the write callback: lcurl.curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION, ffi.cast("callback",discard)); If I dont, I get an error message from ffi that is: unable to convert argument 3 from cdata<unsigned long long (*)(void*, unsigned long long, unsigned long long, void*)> to cdata<vararg> stack traceback: [C]: in function 'curl_easy_setopt' [ctxlua]:42: in function 'check_status' [ctxlua]:1: in main chunk And I have no idea what that actually means or how to fix it?
