PARI is a system for high speed, high precision calculation. It was
designed for mathematicians doing research in number theory, but
may be useful to others who have a need for computations of this
type. Included are functions to work with polynomials, matrices,
vectors, sums, products, power series, etc.
There is extensive documentation in TeX format.
This is a port of the gppari system using Eberhard Mattes' emx
development package for OS/2 and DOS. It is in no way supported by
Henri Cohen or the other authors of gppari. This port requires at
least a 386 processor and a 387 coprocessor (or a 486DX) to run. It
will run under DOS 3.3 or higher, and under OS/2 2.0 or higher.
Under DOS, it does not support DPMI, and hence does not run under
Microsoft Windows.
PARI includes a library of C functions and a standalone front end,
the GP calculator. This archive includes a compiled version of
GP.EXE and the full source for the library. (To be precise, this is
the source for the "portable" version of the system; we have not
included those files specific to other systems, such as the files
using the 68020 assembly language.) There should be no difficulty
in using the library with emx and the gcc compiler.
This version of GP is offered with no guarantees whatsoever, and no promise
of support.
