The language is designed to reduce the cost of building commercial quality software. This goal is achieved by addressing the issues of portability, reuse, ease of use, software maintenance, reliability, testing, and debugging. The language integrates several innovations with a clean and simple syntax.
These primality tests extend Steve Worley's 32 bit primality test. They improve on Jim Sinclair's test that uses 7 SPRP tests. 32 bit numbers are checked with a single SPRP test, two are used for 49 bit numbers, and three for 64 bit numbers.
Numbers under 2^32 can be tested using the SPRP bases in: is.prime.32.base.data
Numbers from 2^32 to 2^64 can be tested using the base pairs in: is.prime.64.base.data
Gilda function determines if any 64 bit number is prime.
The list.is.prime.32.g program lists the bases used to test 32 bit numbers for primality.
It uses this sprp.gg implementation of the Strong Probable Prime test.
The tests have not yet been independently verified. You should verify them before using them and please let me know.
