gmp_init

Create GMP number (PHP 4 >= 4.0.4, PHP 5)
resource gmp_init ( mixed number [, int base] )

Creates a GMP number from an integer or string.

Parameters

number

An integer or a string. The string representation can be decimal, hexadecimal or octal.

base

The base. Defaults to 0.

The base may vary from 2 to 36. If base is 0 (default value), the actual base is determined from the leading characters: if the first two characters are 0x or 0X, hexadecimal is assumed, otherwise if the first character is "0", octal is assumed, otherwise decimal is assumed.

Return Values

A GMP number resource.

$b = gmp_init("0xFFFFDEBACDFEDF7200");
?>


Notes

Note:

It is not necessary to call this function if you want to use integer or string in place of GMP number in GMP functions, like gmp_add(). Function arguments are automatically converted to GMP numbers, if such conversion is possible and needed, using the same rules as gmp_init().
