Because I simply enjoy it, I would like to test this number manually using Prime95 but I'm not exactly sure how I would format the entry in worktodo.txt?
What would be the proper syntax for testing this number, if of course, its even possible?

A direct quote from the prime95 readme.txt file:
Code:
The PRP choice, available from the menus only in the Mac OS X version, lets you do a
probable prime test on numbers of the form k*b^n+c. On all OSes, you can edit
the worktodo.txt file directly. For example add:
PRP=k,b,n,c[,how_far_factored,tests_saved][,prp_base,residue_type][,"commaseparatedlistofknownfactors"]
where the how_far_factored and tests_saved values are used to pick
optimal bounds for P1 factoring prior to running the PRP test.
Should not take long to run compared to current GIMPS work.
PRP=N/A,1,93043462,65536,1,86,2 inserted into the worktodo.txt file and run, indicates ~73 minutes on my Win10 i78750H in the worker window, with a 192K fft length, but oddly about 10 years estimate in the status option. I'm inclined to believe the worker.

edit: as Batalov reminds in the next post, PRP does not prove it prime; it can show something composite but can't prove it prime. It at best indicates probably prime with a high probability.
