Good timing. :)

I am just finishing a revise of the patch for Lua 5.1.3, and I'm glad to announce that the patch is smaller and performs faster, as ever before.

I will send it out today, or tomorrow, once the last remaining tests are performed.

What has changed on the inside is that floating point results are no longer tested for integer values (which was taking time). Instead, integer realm and floating point realm live happily together, and both are seen as type "number" on the outside. This is the right way to go, since calculations are often either integer-only or floating point based (with less integer accuracy).

Anyways, thanks for asking.

I was wondering if anyone has a functional LNUM patch for LUA 5.1.3. I tried to apply the 5.1.2 patch, but it fails in some places, and I"m not familiar with the code.
