Routines in c should be easy to write as most asm are variants of powmod or mulmod. Those are fairly each to code in c, but much harder to optimize.

It is my desire to buy an ARM based MacBook in the future and to write the asm routines for it at that time. Of course others are welcome to do that as well.

The downside of ARM is that the choices for programs to execute PRP tests is very limited.
