mlucas 18

Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS) distributed computing client

Mlucas performs Lucas-Lehmer primality testing of Mersenne numbers in search of a world-record prime. You may use it to test any suitable number as you wish, but it is preferable that you do so in a coordinated fashion, as part of the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS). Mlucas also includes a simple Python script for assignment management via the GIMPS project's Primenet server.


Install mlucas 18 as follows:

guix install mlucas@18

Or install the latest version:

guix install mlucas

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
