[Are you using a C++ compiler ? This warning seems odd.]

You have to cast data correctly. The customary way is to do
mael(dell,first_index+1,second_index+1)=(long) stoi(value)
coeff(dell,second_index+1,first_index+1)=(long) stoi(value)

where mael and coeff are macros.

Though it you data are small integers, you are likely to be better off

     GEN dell=cgetg(first_size+1,t_VEC);
     for(long j=1; j<=first_size; j++) {

and use the Flv_/Flm_ interface.
