Such a calculation still will have to work substantially. Generating the
maximal subgroups directly, as suggested by Derek Holt, will be *much*
faster and less demanding on memory. (I have code for this for GAP 4.2 (No,
it won't work with GAP 3) if anyone is interested.)

Printing CTRL-G from within a string might produce a beep, depending on your
type of machine and operating system (but this is not a supported feature).
To get a longer beep you'll have to use for-llops for delay between several

To my knowledge, nobody offers such a server.
3. And the last related problem: whether somebody already have checked that
S_165 contains the maximal subgroup isomorphic to S_11, which is coming from
the action on unordered triples ?
I believe the problem has been solved completely:
According to the paper of Liebeck/Praeger/Saxl I cited in my previous email
this is maximal in S165. (S_a will be maximal in
S_b if and only if either:
- a=b-1 or
- S_a has a maximal subgroup of index b, unless this is listed as an
exception in this paper. Degree 165 is no exception.)
