|PARI under dosemu|
Hello PARI-dev, Just for fun I have tried to run the PARI DOS binaries under dosemu under Linux using FreeDOS. GP/PARI CALCULATOR Version 2.1.0 (released) ix86 running EMX (ix86 kernel) 32-bit version (readline v enabled, extended help not available) It works fine using DPMI/RSX, but I did not manage to use EMX instead, it seems dosemu does not suppost VCPI. Here the relevant part of dosemu.conf  $_xms = (1024) # in Kbyte $_ems = (off) # in Kbyte $_ems_frame = (0xe000) $_dpmi = (8192) # in Kbyte The ifac code read: #ifdef __EMX__ /* MPQS's disk access under DOS/EMX would be abysmally slow, so... */ This does not seems to apply here: ? factor(2^128+1); \\ 1,840 ms under Linux time = 3mn, 51,570 ms. (all the time is spend in ECM) ? factorint(2^128+1,14) \\ 1,510 ms. under Linux time = 2,800 ms. Cheers, Bill.  Not that I understand what it does...
