It is not my find, I was just adding a Lucas test on it. See post #143#146.
Though I have been working on PiPrimes. I got up to around 350k digits, but I guess I was too late

I have posted pixsieve 2.1 here.
It will now output files in the DECIMAL format which is supported by pfgw 3.8.1. That makes for much smaller files and a lot less I/O. The ability to continue from a previously sieved file now works, so you can start a sieve with pixsieve P1e8 l20000 L30000 C20000 oterms.out spi.txt t4 S15 then continue with pixsieve P1e9 iterms.out oterms.pfgw t4. The last prime in the range is written to the terms file so restarting will not require you to specify p. Also the F option has changed. Like the terms file (o) this will expect a file name. That file will also be written in the DECIMAL format so that pfgw can verify factors. The only caveat with F is that it will always overwrite any preexisting file, so be careful with that if you want to verify factors.

Doing some tests, looks fine so far.
Cosmetics: v2.1 calls itself 2.0 Has 2.1 an option so switch between old format and new DECIMAL output? Is 2.0=2.1 except the output format and resume? (than that would be the 'switch') Edit: didn't need resume for now, jobs small enough or ProcessExplorers suspend/resume, but I just noticed it seems to use wall clock, not compute time, and S/R or SuspendToDisk totally garbles secs/factor. Hm... Edit2: continuing with i form previous file garbles too Sieve started: (input file) 66068881 <= p < 100000000 with 913 terms ...12 factors found at 122089583 secs/factor... It does get back on track to some degree, but it seems at 'deeper' runs with new factors trickling in only very slowly, not so much. Last fiddled with by J F on 20160604 at 21:36

Yes, factor removal rate is based upon wall clock. I will not change that. All other sieves that I have used or coded (and that is a lot of different programs) are based upon the wall clock. Even PRP testing programs tend to use the wall clock. As for continuing, the code must not be initializing something correctly or the calculation is flat out wrong.

Hmmm, couldn't you store the old runtime, secs/factor and %done in the
DECIMAL file too, like the '// Sieved to...', and init a resume from that? (Under the assumtion that PFGW ignores the //part and wouldn't need additional changes too.) Edit: scratch %done  not good since one can resume with a different pmax Last fiddled with by J F on 20160605 at 09:06

(Minor?) Bug with new PFGW 3.8.1, DECIMAL format. Resuming an
interupted run (file from a 10K sieved range with a bit less than 300 numbers, 280290K digits) outputs: Invalid format on line 1 and then some 100 lines with Code:
Length is beyond length of decimal on line 1Length is beyond lengt h of decimal on line 1Length is beyond length of decimal on line 1Length is beyond length of decimal on line 1Length is beyond length of decimal on line 1Length is beyond length of without further problems. Edit: No, it doesn't always continue, sometimes it just stops with 'Invalid format on line 1' When I have time, I will test some more. Last fiddled with by J F on 20160611 at 13:02

I have a fix for this that I am still testing. The problem is caused by the underlying restart logic in pfgw which, to put it mildly, is a piece of crap. It was designed to figure out which line of the input file to restart from, but is really fairly specific to ABCD formats. It does a lot of weird stuff to try to find the correct line. It obviously works for most file types, but that is only because the code is a complete hack.
