Re: How to use PARI library on windows?

This is pretty far off-topic for this list. For the basics of program development, you should refer to the documentation/help files for the system you are using, or get help on a mailing list more appropriate to beginner programming.

Hi, I want to use PARI library, writing my own programs. I'm using Windows XP OS and I write and compile my programs with C++ Builder 6. Is there anybody who could help me? Could anyone give me instructions how to build and compile such a code:

#include <pari/pari.h>

main() {
GEN x, y;
pari_init(1000000, 2);

x = stoi(10);
y = stoi(11);
output( addii(x, y) );

I can't help with Windows specifically, but on a Unix system, you would create a file, say "foo.c", containing your program, and then compile it:

    cc -o foo foo.c -lpari

If "C++ Builder" is an IDE[*], you will have to tell it, however that's done, to use libpari; that is what the "-lpari" does in the command-line version above.

That's all there is to it.
