Windows updated binary modifies luasocket library by
changing a few lua modules and their C version by
adding lacking lines like
module("socket.url") by comparing with the good socket.http.
So probably getmapdl.lua works only on Windows now.

Thus, currently it will be best to modify the script as

local url = socket.url or require("socket.url")
