You have not lost 'CoeffsFFE' during installation. The problem lies in

the manual. There is no function 'CoeffsFFE'. The correct way is to

call 'Coefficients( <field>, <element> )' (see 9.10), and applying

'IntFFE' to the result if integer coefficients are desired (see 17.8).

Note that 'IntFFE' can not only be applied to finite field elements, but

also to finite field vectors and matrices, which are not mentioned in the

manual.

However, if you call 'Coefficients( <finite-field>, <element> )', you

will only get the message "not yet implemented" as a result. I simply

forgot to implement this function in the released library. The first

patch, which I intend to send out later today, adds this function. This

patch will, as a temporary measure, also add a function 'CoeffsFFE'

(which calls 'Coefficients') to the library.

Martin.
