Install command

            The goal of this toolbox is to provide several Number theory related
The following is a list of the current features: 
* primality test with 
  * fast mass division
  * various uses of congruences
* probable primality test with Miller-Rabin test
* pseudo-prime test
* greatest common divisor with 
  * naive recursive or iterative Euclid's algorithm
  * brute force search for divisors
  * binary recursive or iterative algorithm
* linear equation solver ax+by=d by extended Euclid's algorithm
* least common multiple
* list of primes lower than by either naive or fast Erathostene's sieve
* factoring into primes by
  * either naive or fast trial division
  * Fermat's difference of squares
  * Pollard-rho
* solver for linear equation ax = b mod m
* modular inverse
* power of an integer modulo m
* decompose an integer on a given basis
* table of 1000 first primes
* Fermat, Mersenne, Carmichael numbers

The toolbox is based on macros.
The implementation uses Scilab's double precision integers, 
therefore is limited to integers in the [-2^53,2^53] interval.
Many features are missing so that the current state is more a "toy" toolbox.
