Calling the example
from sage.rings.factorint import factor_cunningham
from the docs yields the message that the Cunningham tables should be installed  via ``sage -i cunningham_tables``. Trying this, however, yields a `not found' message, and suggests to try the option `-p' instead of '-i'. This, in turn results in an error message.

Locally compiled versions of Sage on two up-to-date Manjaro Linux machines, and the binary distribution on a Debian 9 machine. In all three cases Sage version 9.0.

researching on the status of cunningham_tables spkg, one finds
it was slated to become standard, but them someone pointed out
that Brent's tables are better, and it leads to
which is in "needs work" state, and links pointing to
files on a dead server.
