CADO creates a directory in /tmp by default, but you can put the path anywhere you want, preferably not in /tmp. Why do you care about the length of the...

Workdir sets the directory where CADO will put all the files related to its current job. You should make a new one for each job and give it a helpful name, e.g. if you were factoring the 139-digit...

Looks like polynomial selection and sieving went smoothly, but there was a crash in linear algebra. I've never seen this particular crash before. If they haven't been wiped yet, could you post the...

This does make sense for numbers where the algebraic and rational norms are very similar in size. The special-q essentially gives you a large prime for free on the side that you're sieving on, so...

This is equivalent to saying that if 8p+1 is prime and of the form (2a-1)^2+64(2b-1)^2, then 2 is an 8th power mod 8p+1. You've rediscovered an old result on when 2 is an 8th power modulo a prime....

Increasing lpb means that you find more relations, because you're allowing larger primes. But you also need...

You're right about more equations than unknowns, but the equations correspond to ideals, not relations. The equations encode "this ideal must appear an even number of times in the desired set of...

The number of relations needed is determined by the lpb bounds, not by the size of the number. Increase each lpb by 1 and you ~double the number of relations required. The mfb bounds also have an...
