Re: reverse of digits()

I see convi here:

sumdigits(GEN n)
  pari_sp av = avma;
  ulong s, *res;
  long l;

  if (typ(n) != t_INT) pari_err_TYPE("sumdigits", n);
  l = lgefint(n);
    case 2: return gen_0;
    case 3: return utoipos(sumdigitsu(n[2]));
  res = convi(n, &l);

in the git HEAD.

I suggest you check out the code, it does not use convi.

However, what is the purpose of sumdigits ?
