So danaj's suite of prime functions in perl Math::Prime::Util is 25 times faster - time to change to perl !!

If its any help I am not computer literate and did not start on perl before my 65th birthday

Perl. Serously, I doubt I could learn enough of it to use it. Then again, perhaps I could. I found their site on the web. It has, what they call, ActiveStatePerl. Another is Strawberry. I am not sure which to look at.

Computer literate: After 32 years of it, I like to think I am. I have seen the evolution to where it is now. I never buy a new machine from a shelf. I build my own. None have ever gave me any problems.

I use Strawberry Perl, which is the perl environment for Windows.

Thanks. I will give it a look.

I have been running some of these with what I wrote. I started at 5e19. All the gaps I am seeing are < 400.

The first few gaps >400, 1st column is the nth gap after 5e19. Time elapsed for the first million gaps was 100 secs. There were no gaps >=600.The first gap at the 600 level is that following 50000000000211284873

Code:

I compared what you have here with what I have. I was able to match the first six of yours. I will never be able to run as fast as yours. At least, it is accurate.

I download and installed Strawberry and looked at some of the examples. I wish it had a really good front-end for code writing.

The first thing to do is to learn how to download additional modules via the command prompt using the CPAN command. Typical modules that I use are:

Timer::Runtime
Math::GMPz
Math::BigFloat
Math::Prime::Util
File::Slurp
threads::shared

With these you can really motor with prime finding and gaps

I learnt some of the basics through https://perlmaven.com/. There are other sites such as https://www.learn-perl.org . Specific enquiries on "how to" can be found through Google searches or through https://www.perlmonks.org/, but with the last of these, if you ask a question, they get pretty angry if it is something you could have found through a search or by "learning by doing".

You can always adapt code you find in the Prime Search Group posts, which is what I do!

It looks like you started at 5e19. I never went that high. I suspect that if you were to put long-haul file I/O and configuration saving in your code, you would not get this sort of speed. One is always at the mercy of the OS. I wrote mine to save everything it finds.

I gave it a try. I was again able to match the first dozen of your results. Yours sort of threw me. You have your larger digit on the right where mine is on the left.

Code:
50000000000000388119, 50000000000000387671, 448
50000000000001566087, 50000000000001565667, 420

Regarding Perl. This will be a work-in-progress for quite some time to come.

An addendum. I really jacked the numbers up. I think the correct expression would be 1e46. It is a "1" with 46 zero's behind it. Gaps over 1,000 are scarce even at this level. The largest I have seen in the data file is 1,292. The really vast majority are from 500 to 800.

My best guess is that the smaller of the two primes that make up the first instance gap of length exactly 1,432 is less than 100,000,000,000,000,000,000...
I have found "an" instance of 1,432. I had to start at 1e51 to do it. Are there instances of this gap in lower primes? I would say yes. Finding it could be time consuming...

Code:
1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001871691
1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001873123
1432
At 1e49, I started seeing some gaps over 1,000, but not many. I simply kept adding zero's.
