Visual Studio 2017

I've added a cast on my fork (this is a mirror from with the applied).

and this fixed the warning. But I don't really like to patch Lua, because then when Lua 5.4 final will be out I will need to repatch it.

Thank you Roberto.

What is the compiler? What are the warning options? Are you sure
this is the only warning of this kind? (I think there are several
other instances of conversion from 'lua_Unsigned' or 'lua_Integer'
to 'size_t' in the code...)
