Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies flint-2.9.0.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).


FLINT (Fast Library for Number Theory) is a C library in support of computations in number theory. It's also a research project into algorithms in number theory.

FLINT 2 is a complete rewrite of the FLINT library from scratch. It includes much cleaner code and in many cases much faster algorithms and implementations.

At this stage FLINT consists mainly of fast integer and polynomial arithmetic and linear algebra. In the future it is planned that FLINT will contain algorithms for algebraic number theory and other number theoretic functionality.
