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.

For the rest I claim that raw pointers must be abolished.
