I want to write a program that takes as input a Prime95 P-1 save file with stage one completed to limit B1, and as output writes a gmp-ecm format save file.

I think the only information needed is the number N being tested, the B1 bound, and the P-1 residue X at the end of stage one, which are all in the save file. The program just needs to read the save file, convert the numbers to standard hex/decimal format, and format the results for gmp-ecm to read.

Has anyone tried to do this already, or have any suggestions?
