11989Re: [PrimeNumbers] has SB been tested?
- Apr 1, 2003Hi,
I think we are getting confused here between roundoff errors (which are
implementation independent assuming the exact same FFT algorithm, limb size,
etc. being run on a processor with the same precision) and coding errors.
The latter are nothing much to do with size.
I believe SoB is using George's code which is fairly well tested, but I
think they may have been tweaking it a bit. Certainly it is beginning to
seem odd that there've been no primes, but I'm not sure its that far out of
line with the expectations.
I agree with David that running a couple of test cases isn't going to harm
throughput much and will give a bit more confidence to the results. But
here probably isn't the best place to suggest an idea for SoB, they have a
