SequentialWorkToDo switch in Prime95
In undoc.txt, I find the following information.
Quote:
Test=33xxxxxx,60 Factor=23xxxxxx,57 Factor=23xxxxxx,57 Factor=23xxxxxx,57 Factor=23xxxxxx,57 Factor=23xxxxxx,57 Factor=23xxxxxx,57 and in prime.ini I have SequentialWorkToDo=0, will Prime95 go on to factoring the factor assignments after factoring and P1 of the Test entry, or will it do the LL on the Test entry before going to the Factor assignments?

It will factor everything first.

It will do the LL test first  I think.

If you had:
Test=33xxxxxx,60 Test=23xxxxxx,57 It would factor the second exponent before LL testing the first exponent

This is useful if you are trying to get the max out of your machine. I ran into this when I went on vacation. I set the switch and during P1 for the second exponent it found a factor and I was able to get a new one to have the machine work on while I was away.

Or you can go into the PrimeNet dialog and ask for it to queue more days of work. If P1 factors the second exponent, it will go on to a third exponent. You would not want to queue too many days of work, but you could double the current value to ensure that you get another exponent.
