Sieving k*2^n1 With Fixed n
Okay, so I'm afraid I'm reviving an old thread, but I don't think my question really has enough substance to merit a new thread. My question is:
How would one go about creating a test file for numbers of the form k*2^n1 or k*2^n+1 for a set "n" value other than using Newpgen? Or, I guess the question I should be asking is: What is the most efficient method for doing so? Thanks in advance!

Newpgen works great for fixed n, have you tried it?

If you want to help on Riesel primes search for k*2^n1, k<300, you need to check webpage http://www.15k.org/riesellist.html because this one has the latest updates.

Can I ask why you would want such a sieve? Note that a sieve like that would be very inefficient compared to existing sieves. It wouldn't scale very well as the range of k increases.
