[apparently, I hit the wrong *discuss* mailing-list, sorry. I let
early responders to re-post their emails, too. Among this, a proposal
to have 'poly1=c0,c1, ...', which is ok with me.]
I have always been embarrassed with the coding of the coefficients of
the polynomials in the .poly files. For now, it is
where it is quite hard to remember why there is a Y, a c or whatever,
if they relate to f or g or alg side or rat side.
Moreover, we are currently on the verge of using more than 2
polynomials, at least for DL computations.
Now that most of the code is symmetrical in f and g (rat and alg have
almost disappeared), I think it is about time we contemplated changing
this. What about:
I can imagine we could end up with
Of course, it is easy to support the previous format if we don't want
to change all the param files.
What do you think?
