Hi Luiz, all,

I've done like you suggested, now the Lua file 'lmathlib.c' is unchanged. I've changed only my top-level file, gsl-shell.c in order to charge the math library as you suggested, thank you very much.

So, now GSL shell just use a vanilla copy of Lua 5.1.4 with LNUM patch, I don't know if this help in order to put it LuaDist. For me there are two possible utilisation of GSL shell:
- as a stand-alone program => in this case a top-level program charges all the needed
  library. In this case we can collapse the math and gsl functions in the common namespace
- as a normal lua library => in this case a separate namespace is used for gsl and math
   functions. I've already integrated this possibility in the software with the FLAG

For me it would be nice if GSL Shell can be made available as a library to Lua users even in my main goal in the stand-alone program.

In C that could be simpler:

  lua_pushvalue(L,LUA_GLOBALSINDEX);   /* open math in global scope */
  lua_pushnil(L);                      /* remove math */

This is what my ae does:
