FFList( F )
returns for a finite field F a list l of all elements of F in an ordering that is compatible with the ordering of field elements in the MeatAxe share library (see chapter The MeatAxe).
The element of F corresponding to the number n is
l[ n+1 ],
and the canonical number of the field element z is
Position( l, z ) -1.
