dear friends ,
I want to know if it is possible to distribute LL algorithm so that we can
run it on a cluster to test one exopnent on several  nodes simultaneously
so check it in a shorter peroid of time . Or should we use trial_factoring
algorithm in this regard!. or other algorithms.???

>> to whom it may concern :
>> my question is: will the p95 software run on a system of
>> clusters??????
