**Worktodo.txt** is the file that tells Prime95 what work units to do and specifically what other parameters to use for that particular assignment and worktype.

The list below shows the meaning of the various entries:

- Test=assignment ID,exponent,how far factored,has been P-1'ed
- DoubleCheck=assignment ID,exponent,how far factored,has been P-1'ed
- AdvancedTest=exponent

- AdvancedTest simply LL tests the given Mersenne number, (ignoring any sort of prefactoring) and is used by Prime95 when you use the Advanced > Test option.

- Probable prime

- PRP=k,b,n,c[,how_far_factored,tests_saved][,known_factors]

- Factoring

- Factor=assignment ID,exponent,how far factored,how far to factor to
- Pfactor=assignment ID,k,b (base),n (exponent),c,how far factored,LL tests saved if factor found
- Pminus1=assignment ID,k,b,n,c,B1,B2[,B2_start][,"factors"]
- ECM2=assignment ID,k,b,n,c,B1,B2,curves to do[,specific_sigma,B2_start][,"factors"]

where k, b, n, c represent a number k × b^{n} + c. (c can take negative values.)
