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

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.
