      I know - I had done that (and trial-division etc.) already (see my original
      post) - the whole problem concerned the last step: _proving primality_.

      Jack: thanks for that. I'd a vague memory of n SPRPs being suffiicient, but
      had forgotten the details and where to find them.

      But 3.4*10^14 is only just above my current limit of 2*10^14 (see my other
      posting today).

      Do you/anyone know of _8_ SPRPs which work up to a higher limit - that would
      be really neat.
