Big integer representation : done!

Next : executing text to point conversion.

Let’s say we have 13 bytes of bit stream, characters, binary picture data, etc, put it into the lowest 13 bytes of FIELD2N variable and see if the value fits on the curve. If not, add 1 to byte 14. Check again if the x value not fits on the curve. We just keep adding one and check until find a value that does fit on the curve.

Then pick one of 2 y values associated with x.

Sounds very simple. But let’s see how to deal with it tomorrow.

Now is very late and I’m going to zzzzzz…….
