I removed the screenshot links. There is no point of having screenshots when you cant get the goods.

According to virus total it's not malware:
VirusTotal malware test

If anyone want to test the tool then give me a pm and I will send you a download link.

The screenshots were perfectly legitimate.

You was referring to the screenshot images.
Yes. you got me. No place for me to hide now.
When looking at them they would hypnotize you to jump in front of a car the very next day.

The links to screenshots are exactly they way they were posted.

Whatever you say, man, whatever you say. Makes just as much sense as the rest of your argumentation.

You removed the screenshots from where your original links point to - and you blame others for that? That's rich!

I also have your old original link to your "wares". The location where it points to was removed by you, too! God help those who you will be sending PMs to. If they are not understanding that you will be sending them something that is different from what was discussed in this thread - they will deal with the consequences themselves. Their trust in your magic mushrooms will be their problem.

I put one up three years ago. I have no idea if it runs on today's machinery with the current YAFU, but if there is actual interest, I would revisit it. If interested, see YAFUWin

As I wrote before. I removed them coz there is no point of having them there without the download link to the tool itself.

Come on man. That hypnotize stuff was just a joke. I dont even think it would be possible to hypnotize some one just by looking at a picture.

Yes. I removed the tool after the download link was removed from this thread.
But I guess since you know abut it you probably tried to download it and perhaps wanted to test it. If you want to then just give me a pm and I will send you a new working download link :)

Yep :) The unsafeness of the library is why yafu only allows multithreading with the external binary.
Recent svn changes to GMP-ECM now include a thread safe prime sieve. You can see this mentioned in the NEWS file in svn:

Changes between GMP-ECM 6.4.4 and GMP-ECM 7.0:
* GMP-ECM is now thread-safe. In particular the "ecmfactor" binary can be
called with say -t 17 to use 17 threads.

I know this is a stupid question but what is ecmfactor.exe used for?

Usage: ecmfactor <number> <B1>

I tried a C74=P54*P20 as the number and B1 = 200k and on the 7th run it found the P20, but what is the point of it compared to ecm.exe ?

Well, if it's thread-safe, it removes the need for ecm.py. That's convenient!

And for external ecm binaries in YAFU! Although I will still keep that functionality since it allows one to use binaries that have already been optimized for a particular platform without recompiling all of yafu's dependency chain. But now the built-in ecm can be multi-threaded.

The OP is offering some enhancements for free but some people only tries to come up with all sort of snags.
