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
       manipulated 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
       single 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).
