[ntl] Getting the Primitive Element in ZZ_pE

   Thanks a lot for such a great library. I have a question, how can one get
the primitive element, i.e. the generator element of the multiplicative
group in a field, in NTL? Say I have created F_4 as an extension of GF(2),
how can I, without using the iostream and typing in, get a ZZ_pE like
alpha=[0 1] such that F_4={0,1,alpha,alpha^2}? Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you,
