In addition to the constructor functions and operators already discussed, there exist further LINT functions that make the C functions developed in Part I available to LINT objects. In the following discussion we make a rough separation of the functions into the categories “arithmetic” and “number-theoretic.” The implementation of the functions will be discussed together with examples; otherwise, we shall restrict ourselves to a table of information needed for their proper use. We shall give more extensive treatment in the following sections to the functions for the formatted output of LINT objects, for which we shall make use of the properties of the stream classes contained in the C++ standard library. Possible applications, in particular for formatted output of objects of user-defined classes, are given rather short shrift in many C++ textbooks, and we are going to take the opportunity to explicate the construction of the functions needed to output our LINT objects.
