Sets the Big Number for primality testing.

Syntax

IppStatus ippsPrimeSet(const Ipp32u*
pBNU
, int
nBits
, IppsPrimeState*
pCtx
);
Include Files
ippcp.h
Parameters
pBNU
Pointer to the unsigned integer big number.
nBits
Unsigned integer big number length in bits.
pCtx
Pointer to the
IppsPrimeState
context.
Description
The function sets a probable prime number and its length for the probabilistic primality test.
Return Values
ippStsNoErr
Indicates no error. Any other value indicates an error or warning.
ippStsNullPtrErr
Indicates an error condition if any of the specified pointers is
NULL
.
ippStsLengthErr
Indicates an error condition if
nBits
is less than 1.
ippStsContextMatchErr
Indicates an error condition if the context parameter does not match the operation.
ippStsOutOfRangeErr
Indicates an error condition if
nBits
is too large to fit
pCtx
.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
