Addons & socket TCP/IP
Hi everyone,

I've got a technical question about addon programming.

Do you know if it's possible to create a socket and initiate a TCP/IP connection directly from the WoW LUA interpreter (with something like ) ?

My goal is to gather combat log and send it to a server in real time but I'm not sure that WoW allows remote connections and/or if I can include external lua modules.

Any help is welcome.

Have a nice day.

Can't be done from Lua.

You can have an external program polling \World of Warcraft\Logs\Combatlog.txt and upload it somewhere.

That's what does for their "live" option.

It's still the wow client that "decides" when to dump data to the log, it's not really real-time.

You can force a dump by reloading ui. Although this would not be good to do in combat.
