Re: Correct use of cgetg

Thanks for the help with t_VECs. I can see how the encapsulation and
tagging idea would make for easier code. In many ways it seems quite
object-oriented! However, I often feel it is better to provide a
complete understanding of the mechanisms at work. Following yours and
Gerhard's explanation, I have actually elected to code the
	E [i] = (long) A
method. At least this demonstrates to me that a long is being used to
hold a long *. Once this is firmly embedded in my mind I may try to hide
the messiness.
