I try to make a program to compute primes between 2^508 and 2^512.

This is pretty much an impossibility when you subtract Riemann's estimates of Pi(x),
R(x) =     \\ Riemann's approx of Pi(x)

(14:24) gp > R(2^512) - R(2^508)
%4 = 355004533527221885776819035743684578740476405756751288608929750922829224386
This is am approximation of the number of primes between  2^508 and 2^512.

So if your program could just check primes it would have to check 10^151 of then, a formidable
task indeed.

For shorter bounds you may want to try


"These big primes sat on a wall. These big primes had a great fal.l And all the Kings computers and all the Kings programmers couldn't put these primes back together again."
