Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
  Package name    : glucas
  Version         : 2.90
  Upstream Author : Guillermo Ballester Valor <gbv@oxixares.com>
  URL             : http://glucas.sourceforge.net/

  Description     : Mersenne prime testing program
Glucas tests Mersenne numbers (2^P-1) for primality using the
Lucas-Lehmer method. It can be used to participate in the Great
Internet Mersenne Prime Search (http://www.mersenne.org), a
distributed computing project that searches for record-breaking prime
numbers. It does not yet support automatic retrieval of exponents to
test from the GIMPS PrimeNet server.
