won't work because there are different bases (6,16,2,16) and Riesel and Sierpinski mode mixed (:258 and :257).
LLR would take all k/n-pairs as Riesel-base 6 (first line!).
the only thing you have to do is to divide the results-file in their original portions (for example if you send results here for special ranges).
helps this?

Mini-Geek and Karsten,

A light just came on about this. It IS possible to test different forms in a single file that is fed into LLR. If you check the README file, you'll see that if you use ABC format, you can do more than one form:

Quote:
Example:

ABC $a*2^$b$c
599 250001 -1
599 250001 +1

which is
599*2^250001-1
599*2^250001+1

These are the ABC forms accepted by LLR (from the readme file):

Fixed k forms for k*b^n+/-1 : %d*$a^$b+%d, %d*$a^$b-%d, %d*$a^$b$c
Fixed b forms for k*b^n+/-1 : $a*%d^$b+%d, $a*%d^$b-%d, $a*%d^$b$c
Fixed n forms for k*b^n+/-1 : $a*$b^%d+%d, $a*$b^%d-%d, $a*$b^%d$c
Any form of k*b^n+/-1 : $a*$b^$c+%d, $a*$b^$c-%d, $a*$b^$c$d

You can even change bases:

ABC $a*$b^$c$d
599 2 250001 -1
599 4 250001 +1

which is

599*2^250001-1
599*4^250001+1

I remember reading about this at some point many months ago but completely forgot about it. I don't know that it applies to this project but it might help at Conjectures 'R Us and is good to know for future reference.
