Re: Elliptic curves over GF(p)?

Thanks for that.  I'm still having difficulties, though, trying to work out from the manual actually how to initialize an elliptic curve using libpari.  Are there any examples somewhere?

Thanks again,

Sorry for not reading your message carefully enough. But libpari can do
anything that gp can.

For instance, the doc for ellap says:
"The library syntax is GEN ellap(GEN E, GEN p = NULL)."
Sometimes, the names change, sometimes, the library can do more.
