Setting up curves with different numbits for ElGamal

This book and the software is very useful for doing experiments of encrypting using elliptic curve cryptography. I’ve been reading some thread with questions on how to change curve parameters, and here’s how:

To change the number of bits, you have to set it in field2n.h

Choose the polynomial irreducible in polymain.c

Set the message to be encrypted in elgamal.c (important note: the length of the message depends on the numbits of the curve)
