Most likely. I recommend to avoid static variables.
Now I have a question:
What are the necessary basic data types and operations for implementing
number theoretic functions and algorithms efficiently?
It seems to me that a signed integer type, basic arithmetic, comparison,
the modulo operator and maybe some bit shifting are sufficient. But
maybe I'm wrong.
However, if I'm right, I think we should concentrate on getting this
right first, and then look at what's left.
