Programming Mathematica: Finding Perfect Numbers

Find all numbers less than or equal to 10000 which are equal to the sum of their proper positive divisors. These are the so called Perfect Numbers. For example 6 has proper positive divisors 1,2 and 3 ( 1+2+3=6 ).

Finding a solution to this problem can be done with the following Mathematica program.

PerfectQ [n_]:=Apply[Plus,Divisors[n]]== 2n
PerfectSearch[n_]:=Select[Range [n],PerfectQ]

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
