      As a follow up, I noticed that potential factors of F(p)and L(p).

      Factors of F(p), must be 1,or 5 mod 8.
      Factors of L(p), must be 1,or 4 mod 5.

      Mersenne factors must be 1,or 7 mod 8.
      Along with other similar properties, this allows GIMPS to eliminate
      95% of potential factors.

      Then they use a binary algorithm, to test the rest....
      Hmmmm... can we find and algorithm ?
