Also the short help is not up-to-date :

? ?isprime
isprime(x,{flag=0}): if flag is omitted or 0, true(1) if x is a strong
pseudoprime for 10 random bases, false(0) if not. If flag is 1, the primality
is certified by the Pocklington-Lehmer Test. If flag is 2, the primality is
certified using the APRCL test.
