Dear Tim and others,

here comes the next version v1.4 of the LargeIntegersPluginBugfix. In
addition to the fix there are a few cleanups and improved test code.

Tim: Please don't forget during merging the plugin code to your VMMaker
sources the class comment (currently it stays at v1.2) and other class
organization changes (removal, other method category).

Note: I don't have separated plugin tests from raw plugin code so far
(at least - I don't like this idea - this needs time and I wanted to be
fast now).


"Change Set:		LargeIntegersPluginBugfix1-4
Date:			8 June 2004
Author:			Stephan Rudlof
Requires:		LargeIntegersPlugin v1.2

This changeset incrementally *upgrades* the LargeIntegers plugin to v1.4.

>From the class comment:


- no semantic change compared to v1.3
- >>cHighBit: improved (could be faster now)
- fix: class comment
- improved class comment
- >>flag: introduced to allow #flag: messages (does nothing)
- new: class>>buildCodeGeneratorUpTo: as hook for switching debugMode
(default is not to change anything)
- removed: class>>new (obsolete)
- minor cleanup of source code layout


- fix: >>primDigitDiv:negative: now checks if its Integer args are
normalized; without this change the plugin crashes, if a division by
zero through a non normalized - filled with zero bytes - arg occurs.
This can happen through printing by the inspector windows after changing
the bytes of a LargeInteger manually.
