==== Description: ====
This project is an attempt to generate 'mostly' primes for numbers with
10->20 decimal digits, by using algebraic and non-algebraic techniques.

Its usefulness for much larger numbers, has not currently been tested, and it
is expected that the phrase 'mostly' would not apply in the case that huge
integers are generated.

Utilise 'free software' computerised algebra systems Sage, and Python, and C,
and GNU gmp library to provide runnable scripts.

Some of the value in this project is in providing example implementations, of
similar scripts in Sagemath/Python/C+Gmp.

Aswell as the code in the project itself, it is hoped that this cross
implementation mathematics, might assist others, who need to shift an
implementation between 'free software' products for runtime efficiency or to
ease maintenance.

==== Other Software Required: ====
GNU gmp from

Some scripts will require the user to have already installed sage from 
Sage is GPL licensed.

Some scripts will require the user to have a working Python interpreter.

==== Other Comments: ====
Using Mercurial and hoping to be able to do that rather than tarballs.
