Code:
Pfactor=exponent,how_far_factored,has_been_LL_tested_once 1) it's easy to automatically generate those lines based on information in the data files. 2) This Pfactor line will use the exact same P1 bounds on your computer as if this exponent had been automatically assigned to you by Primenet for doublechecking and your computer did the P1 test before doing the doublecheck. Your computer calculates the probability of finding a factor and sets the P1 bounds accordingly. If your chances of finding a P1 factor are 3%, the P1 test should be allowed to run only 3% as long as the doublecheck would, so the P1 bounds are automatically set for you with this in mind. Naturally, if you specify that the exponent has not already been LLtested once (Pfactor=p,bits,0), the program will pick much larger P1 bounds because then it's worthwhile to spend 3% of the time it would take to do two LL tests. However, all of those exponents I listed have by definition already been LLtested once. On the other hand, for Pminus1 you must manually specify the bounds yourself: Code:
Pminus1=exponent,B1,B2,0,0 But go for it if that's what you prefer. Quote:

I don't know... I ran a few thousand P1s during the last month and I never had to do a torture test until I switched to Pfactor...
Which reminds me, I can't seem to find this work I did in any of the status files... I assume since they were not from PrimeNet I'll never get credit for them... I will use Pfactor since it is, as you illustrated, much simpler... These 10M exponents need a little less than an hour each to do...

They don't appear in the hourly cleared.txt files of Primenet and you don't get Primenet credit. What I did was to create a second directory for occasional manual P1 tests. I copied everything and then edited prime.int to use: UsePrimenet=0 That keeps two different results.txt files, only one of which needs to be manually cut and pasted into the manual testing page. Can you give some examples of which exponents you tested? I can look for them in PMINUS1.TXT and the factors file.

(I have a hard time keeping track of stuff like that!) Most of my work is turned in under Team_Prime_Rib/Xyzzy or Xyzzy/Xyzzy...
