Start through https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=24607. Bookmark it for later reference. For software after you've absorbed the contents of the first several links there, see http://www.mersenneforum.org/showpos...91&postcount=2 and its attachment. I'll put up a version of Mfactor later. People really should use and recommend Mfactor, not Factor5. Speed penalty ~7+ measured for Factor5. Last fiddled with by kriesel on 20201127 at 14:42

Oh, and can work on exponents whose size is only limited by the memory of your computer. Yep, I'm proud of it, it's my baby... Luigi

Just to be clear, all functional GIMPS software contributions and their authors are welcome and respected. Cllucas used to be the best primality testing software for Mersennes on OpenCL. Eventually it was eclipsed by Gpuowl. I had written a combined TF and LL test program for x86 on DOS, doing it all integer and without the benefit of some number theory understanding; trial long division and grammar school squaring, in Fortran and then C. Single threaded, but didn't matter way back then when dual processor systems were rare. The run time scaling was absolutely dreadful (higher than cube of exponent), and made clear that better algorithms and better implementation were both required to have any chance. I learned of prime95 and its fft based multiplication in mid 1996, after beginning to implement Karatsuba. It didn't take long to decide to switch to George's far superior program.
