"safe": I am quite sure it is correct (whereas the current code isn't), it
helps with sunpro, and it does not break g++-4.3. I don't have much else
available here to test on...
Thanks! I put it in and wait for the next automated build.
The name freefunc_t is just an exemple, it would probably be better if it
was prefixed by gmp_ or something like that. The typedef could also be
moved to gmp.h as it seems like a useful addition to anyone who wants to
use mp_get_memory_functions, whether in C or C++, and in there it would
naturally fall inside a extern "C" when compiled in C++.
I'll leave it in gmpxx.h for this dot-release.
Why have the freefunc_t globally in gmpxx.h, why not put it into the
function, to avoid namespace pollution?
A related isue with gmpxx.h: We use many short, non-prefixed variable names like
"s", and "f" and "z" in gmpxx.h. If a user decides to say
#define s )
before includng gmpxx.h, I think gmpxx.h will not work too well. In
C, one typically uses prefixes to avoid this. Shouldn't this be done
for gmpxx.h also?
