Primality-testing program with multiple types of moduli (PFGW-related)
 
I am wondering if their is a progrma, similar to proth in output and interface, that has a formula that you can change or specify.

This would help locate primes and etc with varying formulas, rather than just 1+k^n, as in Proth

Thanks in advance,

Try PFGW.

How do you actually apecify a formula - it looks like it starts with a default one, but I can't find where to change it.

Also, I haven't been able to find an instruction guide on the internet, which has been annoying...

Can anyone brief me on the basics of PFGW?

Thanks

You will need to construct and ABC file for PFGW. The first line will contain the formula with variables while subsequent lines supply values for those variables. The document (pfgwdoc.txt) is included in the download.

The documentation is not in the Linux binary but in the Win32 version at [URL="http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/primeform/"]http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/primeform/[/URL]
See e.g. pfgwdoc.txt and abcfileformats.txt
