Re: Search utilities executable?

I would like a precompiled version of apgluxe for B2ekn3iknry7c8/S2-a3 C1. C4_4, D8_4, and D4_+4 would also be nice. Attached file has precompiled binaries for all standard symmetries. I see it's a pretty slow rule to apgsearch. There's nothing I can do to reduce min soup requirement - that's a ser...

Oops, I meant D4_+1, D4_+4, C4_1, C4_4 and 1x256. I've updated the zip file in the post above with executables for all symmetries. You'll need 7zip or other file compression utility whic supports the 7z format. please also do 5g(or 8g) or these: https://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=425...
