MATHS MAD
[file: Factorise]
There is a great deal of interest in mathematical functions in
computing and W.E. Thomson sent us this routine to factorise numbers
(maths students everywhere take note!).
There is a time delay which depends on the complexity of the number,
the prime 4294967291 will take around 8 minutes to check, most other
numbers far less!
Note the use of the subroutine at 300, it prints all the digits of a
nine or ten character integer unlike the built in PRINT command which
rounds off at 8 digits.
