A Patrick mentioned in an earlier email, there is luaposix which includes lots
of these functions [1]. There may be tools which generate these bindings
automatically, but I'm not aware of any. Likewise, I'm not aware of any static
analyzer which would be required to spot changes in the prototypes (though you
could cover some(most?) of it through tests). The last time I seriously used
Lua and its C bindings was many years ago, so I am not the best person to
answer these questions.
