    5050Singular can be built including almost any combination of these four
    5151packages. However, some Singular functionality will be disabled if you
    52 do not built Singular with all of them.
     52do not built Singular with all of them. You do not need any additional
     53add-on packages to install Singular. However, for better performance,
     54we strongly recommend that you install the gmp library at a standard
     55place on your system.
     56
    5357
    5458You can use the `configure' shell script in this directory to control
     
    160164
    161165Singular's top-level configure script pays attention to the following
    162 '--enable-PACKAGE' (resp. '--disable-PACKAGE'), and `--with-PACKAGE'
    163 (resp. `--without-PACKAGE') options where PACKAGE can be
    164 'gmp', 'MP', 'factory', and 'libfac'.
     166'--enable-PACKAGE' (resp. '--disable-PACKAGE') options where PACKAGE
     167can be 'MP', 'factory', and 'libfac', 'smallgmp'.
    165168
    166169Giving an '-enable-PACKAGE' (resp. '--disable-PACKAGE;) option means
    167170that the respective PACKAGE is configured and built (resp. is not
    168171configured and built).
     172
     173Furthermore, the following '--with-PACKAGE' (resp. --without-PACKAGE')
     174options are recognized: 'MP', 'factory', and 'libfac'.
    169175
    170176Giving an '--with-PACKAGE' (resp. `--without-PACKAGE') option means
     
    184190      library and header files of PACKAGE are _not_ already installed
    185191      on your system.
     192
     193Singular's arbitrary precision arithmetic can be realized using the
     194GNU multiple precision library, or the smallgmp library contained in
     195this distribution, or using Singular build-in routines. Using the GNU
     196multiple precision (GMP) library results in the best performance. The
     197smallgmp library contained in this distribution is a subset of GMP
     198which is written in C, only. Its performance is usually not quite as
     199good as that of the original gmp library. Singular's build-in
     200arbitrary precision routines are the least efficient.
     201
     202You can specify which arbitrary precision routines are used in
     203Singular by giving configure the option '--with_apint=PACKAGE' where
     204PACKAGE can be
     205  'gmp'         requires that gmp.h and libgmp.a are installed at a
     206                standard place on your system
     207  'smallgmp'    requires that smallgmp.h and libsmallgmp.a are
     208                installed at a standard place on your system (or, that
     209                a the top-level 'make install' is used for building
     210                Singular.
     211  'buildin'     disables that Singular can be build with MP, factory,
     212                or libfac
     213Notice that MP, factory, and libfac, can only be built (and,
     214consequently used by Singular) if the used arbitrary precision
     215packages is either gmp or smallgmp.

    7070Singular 1.0 is distributed with the following libraries

    7474              (C) Gray/Kajler/Wang; Kent State University
     
    106106     contains the source code, documentation, and supporting data
    107107     files for the Singular kernel, and for all add-on packages,
    108      i.e. for the GMP, MP, Factory, and Libfac libraries.

    110110  2. A kernel source distribution of Singular can be found in
     
    113113     only, i.e., it comes WITHOUT the sources for any of the add-on
    114114     packages.

    117116Documentation to Singular is distributed as:

    125 The GMP library and the readline library is available at
    126 ftp.gnu.ai.mit.edu or its mirrors.
     124Singular's performance is best, if it is linked with the GNU Multiple
     125precision library (GMP), instead of the smallgmp library which is
     126contained in the full source distribution. Furhtermore, Singular's
     127terminal i/o is most convenient if it is linked with the GNU readline
     128library.  The GMP library and the readline library is available at
     129ftp.gnu.ai.mit.edu or its mirrors. You have to have these library
     130already installed, before Singular can be linked with them. For more
     131information, see the file README.src contained in this directory.

    22========================
     3  * smallgmp lib added, gmp lib removed from source distribution

    133133               not found, then Singular is build without readline.
    134134
    135   'gmp'      : Uses the gmp (Gnu Multiple Precision) library for
    136                integer arithmetic. Requires that libgmp.a and gmp.h
    137                are installed on your system. If these files were not
    138                found, then Singular is build with its internal integer
    139                arithmetic which is not as fast as the arithmetic
    140                provided by gmp.
    141 
    142135  'dbm'      : Uses the dbm library for DBM links. Requires that
    143136               libdbm.a or libgdbm.a is installed on your system. If
     
    150143               this program is not found, the a built-in display
    151144               routine is used.
     145
    152146  'MP'       : Uses the MP library for MP links. Requires that
    153147               libgmp.a, libMP.a, libMPT.a and gmp.h, MP.h, MPT.h are
     
    179173README file about instructions on how to obtain the above PACKAGEs.
    180174
     175Furthermore, the following '--with-apint=PACKAGE' option is
     176recognized, where package can be:
     177  'gmp'      : Uses the GNU multiple precision library for arbitrary
     178               integer precision arithmetic. This results in the best
     179               performance. Requires that libgmp.a and gmp.h
     180               are installed on your system.
     181  'smallgmp' : Uses the smallgmp library for for arbitrary
     182               integer precision arithmetic. This results in a
     183               performance which is slightly worse than that of the
     184               original gmp library.
     185  'buildin'  : Uses Singular's internal integer arithmetic
     186               routines. The resulting performance is poor in
     187               comparison to gmp or smallgmp and the usage of MP,
     188               factory, or libfac is automatically disbaled.
     189
     190By default, configure checks whether it can find gmp or smallgmp (in
     191that order) and use the respective package, if found. If none is
     192found, then Singular's internal arbitrary precision routines are used.
