NAME

Math::ModInt::GF2 - integer arithmetic modulo 2

VERSION

This documentation refers to version 0.012 of Math::ModInt::GF2.

SYNOPSIS

  use Math::ModInt;

  $a = Math::ModInt->new(1, 2);                   # 1 [mod 2]
  $b = $a->new(0);                                # 0 [mod 2]
  $c = $a + $b;                                   # 1 [mod 2]
  $d = $a**2 - $b/$a;                             # 1 [mod 2]

  print $d->residue, " [mod ", $b->modulus, "]";  # prints 1 [mod 2]
  print "$d";                                     # prints mod(1, 2)

  $bool = $c == $d;                               # true

DESCRIPTION

Math::ModInt::GF2 is an implementation of Math::ModInt for modulus two. Like all Math::ModInt implementations, it is loaded behind the scenes when there is demand for it, without applications needing to worry about it. Implementations for special cases like this can take advantage of properties specific to their subdomain and be therefore substantially more efficient than generic ones.
