The hgmp package

[ Tags: bsd3, library, numeric ] [ Propose Tags ]

Currently, types and instances, and marshalling between Integer and Rational and the corresponding GMP types. That is, enough to allow FFI to GMP code (whether in GMP itself or in third-party code that uses GMP).

Supports only GHC with integer-gmp, this might change if there's any demand.

Readme for hgmp-

[back to package description]


Haskell interface to GMP. Contains type definitions and marshalling functions, to be able to write FFI bindings using Haskell's Integer and Rational types. Function bindings may come in a future version.

A simple example illustrating binding to GMP's next probable-prime function:

{-# LANGUAGE ForeignFunctionInterface #-}

import Foreign.Ptr (Ptr(..))
import Numeric.GMP.Types (MPZ)
import Numeric.GMP.Utils (withInInteger, withOutInteger_)
import System.IO.Unsafe (unsafePerformIO)

foreign import ccall safe "__gmpz_nextprime"
  mpz_nextprime :: Ptr MPZ -> Ptr MPZ -> IO ()

nextPrime :: Integer -> Integer
nextPrime n =
  unsafePerformIO $
    withOutInteger_ $ \rop ->
      withInInteger n $ \op ->
        mpz_nextprime rop op
