18471optimal parameters for GMP-ECM , -oe+ , -I
- Dec 3, 2006Hi , all ,
Within the past several years , the option -oe+ , which broadcasts its
"stdout" to stdout and a file , has apparently disappeared
( can something apparently disappear ?? ) from GMP-ECM .
Is there a replacement or work-around for Windows ? For Linux ?
Where can I read about the option -I ?
I assume its rate is based on some theory .
Does anyone have practical experience to substantiate the theory ?
Or tips about its optimal use ?
Or , in trying to choose how many curves at which B1's will identify the
most factors using the least CPU , would I instead better try to figure
out how to make use of the probability function(s) provided by GMP-ECM
( as I installed it under Windows , its clock is totally out of whack )
The most basic of these questions might well be answered in archives
How can I access such ?
Thanks for your attention .
P.S. I tried to post this message in the GMP-ECM topic at
mersenneforum.org , but was repeatedly rejected as not logged in
or lacking permission , despite reading
"You may post new threads" at the bottom of the page .
I couldn't find any suggestive explanation , nor contact info for
the anonymous operator of mersenneforum.org .
