This is the git repository for LibTomMath, a free open source portable number theoretic multiple-precision integer (MPI) library written entirely in C.
API/ABI changes: check here
develop branch contains the in-development version. Stable releases are tagged.
Documentation is built from the LaTeX file
bn.tex. There is also limited documentation in
tommath.h. There is also a document,
tommath.pdf, which describes the goals of the project and many of the algorithms used.
The project can be build by using
make. Along with the usual
make clean and
make install, there are several other build targets, see the makefile for details. There are also makefiles for certain specific platforms.
Tests are located in
demo/ and can be built in two flavors. *
make test creates a test binary that is intended to be run against
mtest can be built with
make mtest and test execution is done like
./mtest/mtest | ./test.
mtest is creating test vectors using an alternative MPI library and
test is consuming these vectors to verify correct behavior of ltm *
make test_standalone creates a stand-alone test binary that executes several test routines.
