My name is Andre Gustavo Degraf Uchoa, I am doing Master Degree in Computer
Science, area: Computer Network and Telecommunication. I have used GMP Library
to implement an crypthographic algorithm for wireless communication (using Big
numbers, just mpz_t numbers). Now I am trying to implement this algorithm over
architecture with 8 bits, GMP Library works perfectly for 32 bits architecture.
I need a help in how to port this library for 8 bits architecture. If you could
give me a guideline in how to do this, with a book, site, source code,
algorithm, etc. I don't know what is the best option for you, although I am
waiting a help.
Such a port should be pretty straightforward, but you're bound to
hit some quirks.
The crude way is to try compiling it on the system, and run "make
check" and then fix the problems that show up.
