DESCRIPTION
       This library performs arithmetic operations on integers of arbitrary
       size. It was written for use in public key cryptography, such as RSA
       and Diffie-Hellman.

       It uses dynamic memory allocation for storing its data structures.
       That means that there is no limit on the size of the numbers manipu-
       lated by these functions, but return values must always be checked in
       case a memory allocation error has occurred.

       The basic object in this library is a BIGNUM. It is used to hold a sin-
       gle large integer. This type should be considered opaque and fields
       should not be modified or accessed directly.

       The creation of BIGNUM objects is described in BN_new(3); BN_add(3)
       describes most of the arithmetic operations.  Comparison is described
       in BN_cmp(3); BN_zero(3) describes certain assignments, BN_rand(3) the
       generation of random numbers, BN_generate_prime(3) deals with prime
       numbers and BN_set_bit(3) with bit operations. The conversion of
       BIGNUMs to external formats is described in BN_bn2bin(3).
