Since I got many questions about ecpp and I had problems to answer
them by e-mail (espec. to Pawel Wlaz, my name server says "there is no
computer in Lublin") here the answer:
ecpp ("elliptic curves primality prover") is a system to prove primes.
As far as I know the result of the Ph.D. of Francois Morain (?)
Available by anonymous ftp from many servers, e.g.
ftp.uni-stuttgart.de
Directory /pub/math/multipleprecision
File ecpp.V3.4.1.tar.Z
The original place, I believe is
ftp.inria.fr
Directory /INRIA
File ecpp.V3.4.1.tar.Z
Approx. 1.5 MB
