/root/mprime -m

In my opinion, root is not a sensible place to put this.

Make a directory and execute it from there. Unless specified otherwise the data files get worked on in that directory.

If you want the extra output to screen use

./mprime -d

which gives detailed output.

The latest beta version does also have a new benchmarking of trial factoring facility which does similar to the windows one. Benchmark is accessed from an item in the mprime -m menu.
