mlucas is an open-source (and free/libre) program for performing Lucas-Lehmer
test on prime-exponent Mersenne numbers, that is, integers of the form
2 ^ p - 1, with prime exponent p. In short, everything you need to search for
world-record Mersenne primes! It has been used in the verification of various
Mersenne primes, including the 45th, 46th, 48th, 49th and 50th found Mersenne
You may use it to test any suitable number as you wish, but it is preferable
that you do so in a coordinated fashion, as part of the Great Internet
Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS) <>.
