DESCRIPTION

     BN_add() adds a and b and places the result in r ("r=a+b").
     r may be the same BIGNUM as a or b.

     BN_sub() subtracts b from a and places the result in r
     ("r=a-b").

     BN_mul() multiplies a and b and places the result in r
     ("r=a*b"). r may be the same BIGNUM as a or b. For multipli-
     cation by powers of 2, use BN_lshift(3).

     BN_sqr() takes the square of a and places the result in r
     ("r=a^2"). r and a may be the same BIGNUM. This function is
     faster than BN_mul(r,a,a).

     BN_div() divides a by d and places the result in dv and the
     remainder in rem ("dv=a/d, rem=a%d"). Either of dv and rem
     may be NULL, in which case the respective value is not
     returned. The result is rounded towards zero; thus if a is
     negative, the remainder will be zero or negative. For divi-
     sion by powers of 2, use BN_rshift(3).

     BN_mod() corresponds to BN_div() with dv set to NULL.

     BN_nnmod() reduces a modulo m and places the non-negative
     remainder in r.

     BN_mod_add() adds a to b modulo m and places the non-
     negative result in r.

     BN_mod_sub() subtracts b from a modulo m and places the
     non-negative result in r.

     BN_mod_mul() multiplies a by b and finds the non-negative
     remainder respective to modulus m ("r=(a*b) mod m"). r may
     be the same BIGNUM as a or b. For more efficient algorithms
     for repeated computations using the same modulus, see
     BN_mod_mul_montgomery(3) and BN_mod_mul_reciprocal(3).

     BN_mod_sqr() takes the square of a modulo m and places the
     result in r.

     BN_exp() raises a to the p-th power and places the result in
     r ("r=a^p"). This function is faster than repeated applica-
     tions of BN_mul().

     BN_mod_exp() computes a to the p-th power modulo m ("r=a^p %
     m"). This function uses less time and space than BN_exp().

     BN_gcd() computes the greatest common divisor of a and b and
     places the result in r. r may be the same BIGNUM as a or b.

     For all functions, ctx is a previously allocated BN_CTX used
     for temporary variables; see BN_CTX_new(3).

     Unless noted otherwise, the result BIGNUM must be different
     from the arguments.

RETURN VALUES

     For all functions, 1 is returned for success, 0 on error.
     The return value should always be checked (e.g., "if
     (!BN_add(r,a,b)) goto err;"). The error codes can be
     obtained by ERR_get_error(3).

HISTORY

     BN_add(), BN_sub(), BN_sqr(), BN_div(), BN_mod(),
     BN_mod_mul(), BN_mod_exp() and BN_gcd() are available in all
     versions of SSLeay and OpenSSL. The ctx argument to BN_mul()
     was added in SSLeay 0.9.1b. BN_exp() appeared in SSLeay
     0.9.0. BN_nnmod(), BN_mod_add(), BN_mod_sub(), and
     BN_mod_sqr() were added in OpenSSL 0.9.7.
