Yeah, I agree, this is getting out of hand.
The GMP web page needs to be changed so that you have to pass a C-language
test and computer literacy (linkers, compilers, make files) test before you
can download the source code. If you can't pass the test, you can only get
the binaries.

Boy, why don't you just use the regular interface?!! Ordinary users, a=

particularly beginners, are not supposed to fiddle around with the internals=

of mpz_t objects.<BR>

Since you yourself said that you are rather new to C _and_ GMP, you really <=

should _first_ get some experience with just C before exploring the GMP <BR>
internals. But even so, some GMP internals are descibed in the manual.=
