 By the way. I have written small Excel macro that writes msdos bat files and
those bat files keep my computers busy first running CPAPSieve.exe and then
gapper.
Here is example of these bat files :
CPAPSieve O=output_1 b=2 n=198 Mp=1600000000 k=0000000 K=4000006000
gapper g=2700 output_1 >> result_p3000_1.log
del output_1
CPAPSieve O=output_2 b=2 n=198 Mp=1600000000 k=4000000000 K=8000006000
gapper g=2700 output_2 >> result_p3000_1.log
del output_2
countinues up to
CPAPSieve O=output_25 b=2 n=198 Mp=1600000000 k=96000000000 K=10000000
6000
gapper g=2700 output_25 >> result_p3000_1.log
del output_25

Just a quick question, what speed are people getting out of Jim's
Gapper/CPAP combo? I remember seeing something like a search of 1100 billion
being mentioned in the last few days, but how long do such searches take?
I've come up with some supercarmodybogosity heuristic algorithmettes, and
am wondering whether I should give up now, or pursue them.
I can scale CPU/MHz in my head. Anyone want to offer some figures? (And
sorry, no I don't have an x86 machine I can try it on myself presently,
which would appear to be the easiest way to find out.)

It also depends heavily on the memory in the PC. More memory, and
CPAPSieve will process larger ranges, and you can possibly push the
sieve a little higher (10100x), thus gapper will have to check
fewer numbers on average to find prp's. It certainly takes some
"fine tuning" to determine what the best sized range to work with, and
what the best level is to sieve to, to minimize the time taken to
process a range. You are currently running at 510 to 520 seconds per
billion range (as listed 4 billion in 34 minutes)

Even with the compression in the saved files, writing the 75mb file
(your 109 million items will produce a file about this size), and
then rereading it in (along with testing each and every bit to write
the file, and then resetting them upon rereading) takes some time.
I would say probably 35s to save and 25s to read for this size (on a
P450) is probably close to reality.

 When selecting how high to sieve I have tried to balance
these numbers (from my earlier posting) :
sieve :> ** There were 3563266 values removed in the last minute or so
and gapper:
>File nude loaded. 109872444 values left, sieved to: 752500739
I have calculated ratio 109872444 values left / 4598117 prp chks = 23,90
> Looking for gaps >= 2000 from 2^116+1 to 2^116+4000000001
> 4598117 prp chks, tested 2080800 gaps, k=3998697975 [4052.6 prps/s]
and multipled prps/s and this ratio = 23,90 * 4053 =96868 effective prps / s
= 5,812,080 effective prps /min
so I sieved little too high (may be one minute). But right sieving amount
depends on size of memory.

There is probably at least another minute added in for the file I/O.
