mtox (ULTRIX)							 mtox (ULTRIX)

       xtom, mtox, mfree - Performs multiple precision integer arithmetic

       MINT * xtom(MINT *key)

       char * mtox(MINT *key)

       char * mfree(MINT *a)

       Pointers	 to  a	MINT should be initialized using the function  itom(),
       which sets the initial value to n. Alternatively, xtom() may be used to
       initialize  a  MINT from a string of hexadecimal digits. mfree() may be
       used to release the storage allocated by the  itom()  and  xtom()  rou‐

       The  mtox()  function  provides	the  inverse  of  xtom() function.  To
       release the storage allocated by mtox(), use  the  free()  function(see
       malloc(3) and malloc(5)).

       The  Digital  UNIX system provides the libbsd.a library to allow you to
       use library functions that are compatible with ULTRIX BSD library func‐
       tions.  To  use these functions, your program needs to be compiled with
       -D_BSD, the -lbsd and the -lmp options.

       Provided for BSD compatibility for performing arithmetic on integers of
       arbitrary length.

       Digital UNIX Functions:

	   mp(3), malloc(3), malloc(5)
