Default Configuring p-1 test

Hi,

I note that I can use P95 to P-1 elliptical curve test any value by inputting it into the form k \cdot b^n + c.

The readme states:

Quote:
The P-1 choice lets you factor numbers of the form k*b^n+c using
the P-1 method of factoring. You can also edit the worktodo.txt file
directly. For example:
Pminus1=k,b,n,c,B1,B2[,"comma-separated-list-of-known-factors"]
What are B1 and B2 values in this input?
