  Description     : Perl utilities related to prime numbers, using GMP
 A set of utilities related to prime numbers, using GMP. This includes
 primality tests, getting primes in a range, and factoring.
 While it certainly can be used directly, the main purpose of this module is
 for Math::Prime::Util. That module will automatically load this if it is
 installed, greatly speeding up many of its operations on big numbers.
 Inputs and outputs for big numbers are via strings, so you do not need to use
 a bigint package in your program. However if you do use bigints, inputs will
 be converted internally so there is no need to convert before a call. Output
 results are returned as either Perl scalars (for native-size) or strings (for
 bigints). Math::Prime::Util tries to reconvert all strings back into the
 callers bigint type if possible, which makes it more convenient for
