Dear Forum,
first, thank you very much for all who give me valuable advices.

IsPqIsomorphicPGroup (G, H);

A possibility to prove isomorphism of Pc groups is provided by the
function RandomIsomorphismTest :

list := [G, H];
code := List( list, CodePcGroup );
code := List( code, x -> rec( code := x, order := 2^10 ) );
RandomIsomorphismTest( code, n );

1) Is there difference between words "decide" and "prove" -
both functions just give an answer "yes" or "no" and did not
return the isomorphism if it exists, isn'it ?

2) whethere Anupq is considered to be the most powerful tool comparing it
with IsomorphismGroups and RandomIsomorphismTest ?
