hello all,

As I am new to GAP and trying to learn it (i am not a maths specialist - =
=3D
just a computer specialist)
, i sometimes ask very simple questions. Thanks to "Steve Linton" for =
=3D

I now implement random number generation on UNIX systems and primality =
=3D
tests on GAP. (thesis for the master degree)
I wrote some code for primality tests.

When calculating benchmark, i use "Runtime()" , but the same test can =
=3D
return different values with the same numbers. (becouse of the system =
=3D

I can use system time but i don't think it will be enough.

Well, any help will be helpfull ..

yours sincerely,

Research Asistant Enis Karaaslan
