/* LibTomMath, multiple-precision integer library -- Tom St Denis
*
* LibTomMath is library that provides for multiple-precision
* integer arithmetic as well as number theoretic functionality.
*
* The library is designed directly after the MPI library by
* Michael Fromberger but has been written from scratch with
* additional optimizations in place.
*
* The library is free for all purposes without any express
* guarantee it works.
*
* Tom St Denis, tomstdenis@iahu.ca, http://math.libtomcrypt.org

#include <tommath.h>
/* performs one Fermat test.
*
* If "a" were prime then b^a == b (mod a) since the order of
* the multiplicative sub-group would be phi(a) = a-1. That means
* it would be the same as b^(a mod (a-1)) == b^1 == b (mod a).
*
* Sets result to 1 if the congruence holds, or zero otherwise.
