GNU Multiple Precision Arithmetic Library

GMP is a free library for arbitrary precision arithmetic, operating on
signed integers, rational numbers, and floating point numbers. There is
no practical limit to the precision except the ones implied by the
available memory in the machine GMP runs on. GMP has a rich set of
functions, and the functions have a regular interface.

Changes in GMP 6.1.2


    Mini-GMP: Fixed a division bug, which on a machine with 64-bit unsigned long affects approximately 1 out of 232 divisors.
    Mini-GMP: Fix mpz_set_str crash on inputs with a large number of leading zeros. Also stricter input validation, rejecting inputs with no digits.


    Handle more systems which require PIC code in static libraries (e.g., "hardened" Gentoo and Debian 9).
    Configuration for arm (-32 and -64) has been rewritten, fixing poor code selection for many CPUs.
    Mini-GMP: Updated to the latest development version, including new functions mpn_com and mpn_neg.


    None, except for arm CPUs affected by the configuration rewrite.
