#' Padovan numbers
#'
#' Under OEIS \href{https://oeis.org/A000931}{A000931}, the \emph{n}th \emph{Padovan} number is given as
#' \deqn{F_n = F_{n-2} + F_{n-3}}
#' where the first 6 entries are 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1.
#'
#' @param n the number of first \code{n} entries from the sequence.
#' @param gmp a logical; \code{TRUE} to use large number representation, \code{FALSE} otherwise.
#'
#' @return a vector of length \code{n} containing first entries from the sequence.

#' @examples
#' ## generate first 30 Padovan numbers
#' print(Padovan(30))
