The prime directive: boldly factoring...


Ofttimes in mathematics, we need to be able to factor a number. Yawn. If a number has only 2 unique factors, it is said to be prime. Prymus tells you whether a number is prime or not, and if it isn't, it will tell you all the prime factors that makes it a 'composite.'

Prime numbers are often used in encryption scenarios so they are not totally lame. Eratosthenes came up with an algorithm to find prime numbers, known as the Sieve of Eratosthenes.
