For now, only output is neccessary. And since we are going to redesign the system, it is not a high priority to allow installed functions to take an int. Especially since there is no 't_INT to C int' conversions routines in GP. Even, I would not encourage the use of 'int' for whatever in PARI. Currently functions with return type 'int' are comparaison functions which only return either -1, 0 or 1. Cheers, Bill.
