If we want to document how to deal with Z-modules in PARI, probably we should add a dedicated section on this topic instead of adding bits of information in unrelated functions help messages. If you want to compute the intersection of Z-modules, I do not see why you would look at idealintersect except for the fact that ???"modules" return it. By the way, ??matintersect still assume that idealintersect can handle free Z-modules. It should be updated. Cheers, Bill.
