The extended Gapcoin 0.16.3 client has been augmented with an RPC/API call
checkprimegaplist startheight endheight Returns a list of formatted record gaps or improved merits appropriate for copying and pasting into Seth Troisi’s online submission service at https://primegaps.cloudygo.com/. Arguments: 1. startheight (integer) First block number to check. 2. endheight (integer, default = chaintip) Last block number to check.
The client retrieves the latest version of the Prime Gaps List
allgaps.sql from the Prime Gap List repository and uses it to check all the gaps in the Gapcoin blockchain since the given starting height against the current record to find any improved merits or (unlikely, these days) new first occurrence record gaps.
If any candidates are found, the data is output in a format compatible for copying and pasting directly into Seth Troisi’s online submission/checking service:
Set the discoverer field to “
log”, set a date and paste the output into the textarea:
Click the “Add” button and the input will be checked against the current record (in essence, confirming the checks performed by the extended Gapcoin client).
To confirm a successful submission, follow the top-of-page link
prime-gap-list to the Prime Gap List’s Github repository where the latest commit should be the Gapcoin records just processed.
And then follow the link to the commit details.
