Edit: For version 24.14 Edit 2: It has to do with numbers b^n-1, with b an odd prime and n a prime. The Odd Perfect Number search is what I'm crunching for. If it helps you help me, than the specific numbers at the moment are 2801^79-1 and 2801^83-1. Last fiddled with by jasong on 2007-11-16 at 01:08

I found the following in the mprime readme.txt file. What are the 'not used anymore' options?
Quote:
 ECM=751,3000000,0,100,0,0,0,0 The first value is the exponent. The second value is bound #1. The third value is bound #2 - leave it as zero. The fourth value is the number of curves to test. The fifth value is no longer used. The sixth value is the specific curve to test - it is only used in debugging. The seventh value is 0 for 2^N-1 factoring, 1 for 2^N+1 factoring. The eighth value is no longer used.
