Hi Christian,

Let's see if I understand the situation:

To implement polynomial factorization algorithms I could start 
coding for the CLN immediately because CLN lets me define polynomials in Z 
mod p? Could we include such a code in GiNac somehow?
(Coefficients in Z mod p and modular arithmetic are a prerequisite for 
factorization algorithms.) 

By contrast, GiNaC's type offers multivariate polynomials and a gcd, but is 
less efficient, does not support coefficients Z mod p, and is altogether 
separated from CLN's number package?

And if it's not asking too much: Could you give me a short code example on 
how to set a modular coefficient ring for polynomial computations in CLN? 

Thank you very much!
