NAME
       BN_mod_inverse - compute inverse modulo n

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/bn.h>

	BIGNUM *BN_mod_inverse(BIGNUM *r, BIGNUM *a, const BIGNUM *n,
		  BN_CTX *ctx);

DESCRIPTION
       BN_mod_inverse() computes the inverse of a modulo n places the result in r ("(a*r)%n==1").
       If r is NULL, a new BIGNUM is created.

       ctx is a previously allocated BN_CTX used for temporary variables. r may be the same
       BIGNUM as a or n.

       codes can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3).
