/* 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
