Default Range testing

Can prime95 be used in a way to test a range of exponents, so that instead of having many worktodo lines, I input a range (in some way)?

Not anymore. Why do you ask? Are you doing something off by yourself?

In the early days, when George Woltman would assign ranges of exponents (and each exponent took only a few days), it was possible. Now that PrimeNet assigns exponents individually, it's no longer necessary or useful for Prime95 to be able to test a range of exponents.

Re Uncwilly's comment:

The only reason to be able to specify a range of exponents now is that the user wants to test exponents without using PrimeNet to get assignments. Please don't do that.
