Dear Forum,

First: can you tell me, what number X (given to GAPEMX.EXE with parameter -m
Xm) works best (fastest) with respect to invoking Editor or computation of
large objects (garbage collection etc.).

My own tests (I have a 386-PC with 8Mb) brought this: Calling GAP with -m 4m
results in (a little) faster Execution as -m 6m being faster as -m 7m.

Second: I'm in need of a function returning the (rounded) modulus of a
cyclotomic, e.g. something like AbsVal(1+E(4)) giving something about
1414/1000. Is there something I haven't found? (gap3r4p0)

Thanx & Bye, Johannes
