I would be most interested in having a look at your cofact addon, seeing as I saved proofs for the PRP runs on F17 to F26, generated by mprime 30.10; as a ‘sanity check’, I gather these ought to return the additional values I was after, by using cofact’s mode 3, which hopefully match the various residues in your spreadsheet. A Linux binary would be capital! Of course in the long term, should another prime factor turn up for any of these smaller Fermats for which Pépin residues were obtained, something like cofact would be most useful for seeing whether the new factor helps complete the factorisation. (I know it’s unlikely, but one can dream.) Edited to add (after reading Wilfrid’s page again, more carefully): Wow! Congrats on finding a factor for F1784!
