Re: Mathematical Functions not Needed



....the same depending on how I handle floating point support. And in
cryptography, this is a no-go.
- floating-point arithmetic is SLOW
- continuous mathematics is horribly well-defined, while cryptography
needs irregularity. This is provided to an extent in discrete
mathematics, as far as we know.

So, overall, the real number line is *not* the desktop of all number-
theoretic cryptography, and will never be. So now just shut the hell
up and stop posting your crap on the net, because you're not helping
anyone.
