Be careful with the o output file. I tested the very first version you added to this thread on May 14th and I tested on the first 1000000 digits of pi and it created a huge output file which was > 50 GB in a few minutes before I noticed it and stopped it.

Mhm, this is not the only case where it is better to break a big range into some chunks
instead of doing it in one run. Learned long time ago that stopping/restarting PFGW often with multiGB files is not the smart thing do to, for instance.

Agreed. Since the run time of PRP tests varies significantly, doing it in chunks makes a lot more sense WRT the desired removal rate.

One advantage of 2.0 is that it only writes at the end, but it will still write those massive strings. I could add a feature to pfgw to take a file, like an ABC file, and use it. The first line would be the decimal representation and the subsequent lines would have an offset and length of each term for the one specified on the first line.

Uhhh, composites...
command line pixsieve sPi1M.txt S380 P1e13 l275500 L280K o_NoF m1e16 f20 t3 C5K I did let it run for a while, ctrlC, waiting for threads to finish and output written, hand _NoF over to pfgw64 i V l f2 _NoF ... tons of small factors. Trying good old S10 L20K: the same I hope I'm doing something wrong with my parameters.

Fixed. I also fixed a threading issue where it wouldn't terminate very quickly if you had many threads.
In the next version I hope to have this working nicely with the pfgw changes I am working on. Those changes will reduce the size of the factor file and the terms file. I'll put those updates in this thread when they are ready.
