This makes only sense when Stages is enabled. # 2: When a factor was found for the current assignment stop after the # current class. # # Default: StopAfterFactor=1 StopAfterFactor=1 It depends if you are here for the main GIMPS project of finding Mersenne Primes. Then you should stop after finding a factor, because then that candidate is done and not prime, and hurry on to the next candidate. But if you are interested in the GIMPS "side" project of finding lots and lots of factors of Mersenne numbers, you should continue. Last fiddled with by ATH on 2022-01-16 at 17:25
