Has nobody commented on the program's kick ass speed?? It can add two, then multiply by two, then divide by two in record time!

We can at least write F33 as 2^8589934592+1, yes? That may at least help to illustrate just how much larger it is than the largest-known prime, 2^82589933-1.

Or is it that you know p prime, and it computes p+2 *and* tests it for...
