C++/CLI also fails to give cross platform support.
For that you have to use old LuaInterface.
There is also https://github.com/jsimmons/LuaSharp which I wrote
The high level bit is likely useless, but the low level P/Invoke layer

was young and ambitious) so it's quite nice to use provided you're
happy using the Lua rather than a more idiomatic API.
