34			THE GNU MP LIBRARY
35
36
37GNU MP is a library for arbitrary precision arithmetic, operating on signed
38integers, rational numbers, and floating point numbers.  It has a rich set of
39functions, and the functions have a regular interface.
40
41GNU MP is designed to be as fast as possible, both for small operands and huge
42operands.  The speed is achieved by using fullwords as the basic arithmetic
43type, by using fast algorithms, with carefully optimized assembly code for the
44most common inner loops for lots of CPUs, and by a general emphasis on speed
45(instead of simplicity or elegance).
46
47GNU MP is believed to be faster than any other similar library.  Its advantage
48increases with operand sizes for certain operations, since GNU MP in many
49cases has asymptotically faster algorithms.
50
51GNU MP is free software and may be freely copied on the terms contained in the
52files COPYING* (see the manual for information on which license(s) applies to
53which components of GNU MP).

57			OVERVIEW OF GNU MP
58
59There are four classes of functions in GNU MP.
60
61 1. Signed integer arithmetic functions (mpz).  These functions are intended
62    to be easy to use, with their regular interface.  The associated type is
63    `mpz_t'.
64
65 2. Rational arithmetic functions (mpq).  For now, just a small set of
66    functions necessary for basic rational arithmetics.  The associated type
67    is `mpq_t'.
68
69 3. Floating-point arithmetic functions (mpf).  If the C type `double'
70    doesn't give enough precision for your application, declare your
71    variables as `mpf_t' instead, set the precision to any number desired,
72    and call the functions in the mpf class for the arithmetic operations.
73
74 4. Positive-integer, hard-to-use, very low overhead functions are in the
75    mpn class.  No memory management is performed.  The caller must ensure
76    enough space is available for the results.  The set of functions is not
77    regular, nor is the calling interface.  These functions accept input
78    arguments in the form of pairs consisting of a pointer to the least
79    significant word, and an integral size telling how many limbs (= words)
80    the pointer points to.
81
82    Almost all calculations, in the entire package, are made by calling these
83    low-level functions.
84
85For more information on how to use GNU MP, please refer to the documentation.
86It is composed from the file doc/gmp.texi, and can be displayed on the screen
87or printed.  How to do that, as well how to build the library, is described in
88the INSTALL file in this directory.
89
90
91
92			REPORTING BUGS
93
94If you find a bug in the library, please make sure to tell us about it!
95
96You should first check the GNU MP web pages at https://gmplib.org/, under
97"Status of the current release".  There will be patches for all known serious
98bugs there.
99
100Report bugs to gmp-bugs@gmplib.org.  What information is needed in a useful bug
101report is described in the manual.  The same address can be used for suggesting
102modifications and enhancements.

README.HG

1When you have checked out a fresh copy of GMP from the repository, the
2usual ./configure && make is not sufficient to build the sources. You
3need to have the following extra tools installed:
4
5* autoconf-2.65
6
7* automake-1.11.1
8
9* libtool-2.2.6b
10
11Later versions of these tools may work as well. Then the following
12steps are needed:
13
14* Run the .bootstrap script, in the top source directory. This
15  creates various automatically generated files such as configure and
16  Makefile.in.
17
18    ./.bootstrap
19
20* Run the configure script, either in the source directory or in a
21  separate build directory. Use the --enable-maintainer-mode option.
22
23    ./configure --enable-maintainer-mode
24
25Then you should be able to build the sources.
