try msieve -h for the list of flags and what they do.

It is a convention to use -h to get help from a program.

We're in the yafu subforum, not msieve... this is something that yafu doesn't really tell you, either in -h or in the docfile... I can very much sympathize with him.

 2016-02-11, 08:45 #21 jux     Aug 2015 2×33 Posts I ran with Code: yafu-x64.exe nfs(10941738641570527421809707322040357612003732945449205990913842131476349984288934784717997257891267332497625752899781833797076537244027146743531593354333897) -ncr -threads 8 -R -v -v -v and it's still starting at 0.3%. At the next checkpoint, will YAFU recognize the old files? nfs.dat.chk was modified when I ran the above command, but it still has its old (progress) size.

If you ran -nc2 already, then no, unless you have a backup saved in a different location. nfs.dat.chk is overwritten and no longer refers to your "old" run. The size is immaterial to the progress of the job.

Apologies for not including -ncr in the docfile. All I can say is it is a sharp learning curve for all this stuff, and even people that have been doing it for years still type -nc2 when they mean -ncr.
