Math::BigInt::GMP(3) Use the GMP library for Math::BigInt routines


Provides support for big integer calculations by means of the GMP c-library.

Math::BigInt::GMP now no longer uses Math::GMP, but provides it's own XS layer to access the GMP c-library. This cut's out another (perl sub routine) layer and also reduces the memory footprint by not loading Math::GMP and Carp at all.

Thanx to Chip Turner for providing Math::GMP, which was inspiring my work.
